Dear Oracle Partner,
On June 21, 2011, Oracle announced that it has agreed to acquire FatWire Software (FatWire), a leading provider of web experience management solutions. The proposed transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, and is expected to close in mid-year 2011. Until the transaction closes, each company will continue to operate independently, and it is business as usual.
FatWire is recognized by industry analysts as a leading provider of web experience management solutions and has a history of developing innovative software to optimize the web experience for customers. FatWire brings significant domain expertise in delivering an integrated and scalable solution across web and mobile and social channels to global enterprises in many industries including Financial Services, Healthcare, Media, Manufacturing, Retail, and Travel and Entertainment. FatWire’s solutions are designed for business users with easy-to-use tools, enabling marketers to optimize the online experience for customers.
As more companies rely on their web sites as their most important channel for communication, marketing, customer engagement and commerce – they realize that optimizing the online experience requires best-in-class capabilities delivered on an integrated platform with complete back-office and data integration. Business managers require the ability to easily modify site content and design, enable social interactivity, analyze and optimize content, and create customer segmentation to deliver tailored messages across all online touch points.
FatWire’s solutions complement and further extend Oracle’s solutions including BI, CRM, Enterprise Content Management, WebCenter and ATG Web Commerce. Oracle and FatWire together expect to provide partners with the most complete web experience management solution – enabling companies to fully optimize the multi-channel online customer experience through an integrated and scalable platform.
All partners may take advantage of extensive worldwide resources, enablement, and growth opportunities through the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) program and become specialized. Specializations are demonstrated by role-based assessments that determine a level of competency in the specific area of specialization. Specializations are awarded at the company level; OPN also enables individuals within partner companies to be recognized for their product-specific expertise. Specialization achievement is promoted by Oracle and may help partners differentiate themselves in the marketplace and gain a competitive edge. Partners can select from a wide range of specializations from Oracle’s growing product portfolio. For more information on OPN and specialization, please visit oracle.com/partners.
