On October 9, 2006, Oracle announced that we have acquired Sunopsis SA.
Sunopsis is a leading provider of high-performance, cost effective data integration products for heterogeneous IT environments. Sunopsis' data integration products are built using next generation "Extract Load Transform (ELT)" architecture that offers superior performance and scalability in comparison to traditional ETL products. With the ELT architecture, data transformations take place within the source or target databases without the need for an ETL server. This results in higher performance and scalability along with easier maintenance for data integration solutions.
Oracle and Sunopsis have complementary products with a shared focus on delivering the very best data integration products to our customers. Real-time information access, next-generation architectures and more mixed IT environments are driving increased requirements for sophisticated, fast, heterogeneous data integration solutions. We plan to incorporate Sunopsis’ high-performance data integration technology into the Oracle Fusion Middleware product family and make it an integrated part of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), Business Intelligence (BI), and Master Data Management (MDM) solutions from Oracle. Sunopsis products are optimized for heterogeneous IT environments and as part of Oracle’s hot-pluggable middleware architecture, Oracle is committed to supporting Oracle and non-Oracle data sources and targets.
