It looks like Oracle's acquisition plan continues to roll along as we have just bought ClearApp:
Oracle buys ClearApp
Two key points I think that this acquisition addresses are:
1) ClearApp addresses the increasingly difficult task of managing composite applications built on SOA platforms by providing visibility of business services across all related application components.
2) ClearApp products and Oracle Enterprise Manager are expected to provide customers with a comprehensive application management solution providing enhanced service levels, reduced system down-time and improved return on SOA investments.
Locally I have seen our SOA based solutions grow from strength to strength and I think technically we are leading the way in the market place.
As a separate comment it is good to see recognition for all of Safra Catz's work in making Oracle as succesful as we are as she has been listed in Forbes magazine recently:
