On July 23, 2009, Oracle announced the acquisition of GoldenGate Software, Inc. ("GoldenGate"), a leading provider of real-time data integration solutions to create a comprehensive heterogeneous data integration platform. This combination is expected to deliver the fastest and most scalable real-time data integration solution for customers.
Demand for improved business performance is on the rise. As a result, enterprises recognize that real-time data integration to support high availability capabilities and real-time information has become mission critical. Information systems require real-time information to be highly available and synchronized across the enterprise.
GoldenGate addresses the need for effective real-time data integration and management with the ability to capture and deliver updates of critical information as the changes occur and provide continuous synchronized data across heterogeneous environments. This results in improved business intelligence across the enterprise, with more accurate and timely analysis of real-time business performance.
GoldenGate also enables high availability and disaster tolerance with core functionality that supports real-time data integration, while preserving performance and ensuring scalability. With this capability, business-critical applications such as online banking, claims processing and online shopping continue to operate without any disruption. GoldenGate’s solutions address all types of outages as a result of upgrades, maintenance, application of patches, and application or platform migrations.
After the close of the transaction, we expect that Oracle partners will benefit from working with a single solution to provide their customers with a comprehensive platform for real-time data integration, and extend their solution portfolio. GoldenGate is already integrated with Oracle Database, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Applications, Oracle Business Intelligence, and Oracle Enterprise Performance Management. Complementary products including Oracle Data Integrator Enterprise Edition, Oracle Data Integration, Oracle Data Service Integrator, Oracle Data Quality, and Oracle Data Profiling is also expected to be offered after the close of the transaction.
All partners have the opportunity to take advantage of extensive worldwide resources, enablement, and growth opportunity through the Oracle PartnerNetwork program. For more information on the Oracle PartnerNetwork, please visit oracle.com/partners.
The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close in the second half of 2009. Until the deal closes, each company will continue to operate independently.
Thank you for your continued support.
