GoldenGate Acquisition Details Page For Partners


Oracle has acquired GoldenGate, a leading provider of real-time data integration solutions. GoldenGate's best-in-class solutions enable real-time data integration and management by capturing and delivering updates of critical information as the changes occur and providing continuous synchronized data across heterogeneous environments. Companies are expected to gain improved business intelligence across the enterprise, with more accurate and timely analysis of real-time business performance.

GoldenGate's complementary product accelerates Oracle's product strategy to manage real-time data integration through a comprehensive data integration platform. This combination is expected to deliver the fastest and most scalable real-time data integration solution for customers.

About GoldenGate Software

GoldenGate is a privately-held company headquartered in San Francisco, CA, that delivers solutions for real-time data integration, high availability and disaster tolerance.

GoldenGate is recognized as a best-in-class leader in real-time data integration that enables non-invasive real-time data capture and delivery across heterogeneous systems. Oracle and GoldenGate have been partners for over ten years, and share a vision on providing customers with a comprehensive real-time data integration solution.

GoldenGate’s products already integrate with Oracle Database, Oracle Exadata, Oracle Fusion Middleware, and several Oracle Applications. Oracle is expected to increase support and investment across wide breadth of operating systems, data sources and applications. GoldenGate has a proven customer and partner base, and many of GoldenGate’s customers are also Oracle customers.

Why the Combination

With the proposed combination, Oracle will be able to provide the fastest, most scalable real-time data integration solution. We see an exceptional strategic fit between Oracle and GoldenGate in terms of complementary product strengths and support for standards.

The combination extends Oracle Middleware to provide replication and data movement capabilities to heterogeneous sources and targets, enables real-time information feeds to Oracle Business Intelligence and Oracle Enterprise Performance Management for better business insights and finally enables zero-downtime migration and upgrades for mission critical Oracle Applications.

In addition, GoldenGate’s real-time data integration offerings are complementary to Oracle’s current data integration product offerings: Oracle Data Integrator Enterprise Edition, Oracle Data Integration Suite, Oracle Data Service Integrator, Oracle Data Quality, and Oracle Data Profiling.

GoldenGate enhances real-time data replication and synchronization across heterogeneous systems, while ensuring continuous data availability for business applications across multiple systems. These capabilities complement both the current value and future product strategies at Oracle.
