Oracle Set To Acquire SOA Managent Provider AmberPoint
Oracle is to acquire AmberPoint, a provider of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) Management, Business Transaction Management and run-time SOA Governance. AmberPoint’s services allow organisations to diagnose and resolve issues in business transactions and application performance where multiple applications are working together, before the business is negatively impacted.
This acquisition will extend Oracle’s Fusion Middleware SOA Suite of Oracle SOA Suite, Oracle SOA Governance and Oracle Enterprise Manager. In a statement posted on Oracle’s website, Thomas Kurian, Oracle Executive Vice President of Product Development said:
“We expect the addition of AmberPoint’s products to Oracle Fusion Middleware SOA Suite will provide stronger end-to-end governance that allows customers to manage the entire lifecycle of SOA-based solutions, providing visibility and management across heterogeneous environments.” Thomas Kurian.
The transaction is expected to close in the first half of 2010.
