On October 9, 2006, Oracle announced that we have acquired Sunopsis SA, a leading provider of high performance and cost effective data integration software. We would like to take this opportunity to pledge our continued commitment to the success of your business and to outline the benefits that we expect this transaction to deliver.
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 your 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.
The Oracle Database includes the Warehouse Builder core ETL features and the Warehouse Builder Enterprise ETL and Data Quality options. Warehouse Builder has a high performance "Extract Load Transform" architecture for loading Oracle Database data warehouses and data marts from heterogeneous sources. The Sunopsis product is complementary to Warehouse Builder, as it offers enhanced solutions for loading heterogeneous target systems including IBM DB2, Teradata, and MS SQL Server.
We are excited about this acquisition and how it will accelerate innovation in data integration. More information can be found at www.oracle.com/sunopsis.
We appreciate your continued support.
