Oracle to Acquire BEA

Today, January 16, 2008, Oracle announced an agreement to acquire BEA Systems, Inc. This is sure to bring new innovativeness to the strong middleware position Oracle currently has with Oracle Fusion Middleware. BEA is a strong leader in the middleware space. With this purchase we can all expect acceleration of the SOA and Java-based technologies Oracle is currently offering today. The interoperability of Oracle Fusion Middleware and BEA will offer customers more options and flexibility with middleware solutions in the future.

The middle-tier is playing an increasing role in database architectures with identity management, SOA, BPEL, XML and Java based applications. As customers requirements become more complex, the increased options and flexibility that this acquisition will bring is important to Oracle customers. This brings the power of Oracle's BI purchases such as Hyperion and the Web 2.0 and the SOA stack that BEA has. Instead of looking at this as Oracle purchasing BEA, it is also important to also look at the new stew ingredients that Oracle and BEA have with Hyperion, Web 2.0 components, AquaLogic, XML, SOA stacks, etc. When you look at the ingredients as if a stew is being put together, the components of this stew mix that Oracle and BEA can now set on the table is pretty interesting to middleware enthusiasts.

    The Trubix Blog is focused on discussions on strategic directions in database technology and the challenges Oracle technologists are addressing today and in the future. This site will focus on issues and challenges of database management that cannot be resolved with a code snippet. There are already a lot of great websites out there with tons of code samples. We would like to facilitate more discussions on issues Oracle technologists are dealing with today that a quick search on the Internet cannot solve. There will also be a group of recognized industry leaders that will also participate in this blog. This blog is an extension of the Tim Tam Group, an international group of industry leaders that meet once a year to discuss strategic directions in the industry.
