Oracle's IT solutions are complete, open, and integrated. Based on public and open industry standards, our products simplify many of our customers' interoperability, security, and cost-of-deployment decisions.
Oracle understands the importance of open standards, and we support adopting an open technology strategy. This approach helps our customers avoid vendor lock-in and reduce the total cost of their technology investment, enables access to technical details and interfaces, and lowers barriers to innovation.
Open standards enable innovation, facilitate fair competition, and allow for interoperability with legacy and third-party systems. For decades, Oracle products have reflected an open standards philosophy.
“Open standards are very important for our customers, and for us, because they help shape the way we build our products.”
