Oracle Acquires AmberPoint

Oracle announced yesterday that it has agreed to acquire Amberpoint, stating in a press release that:

"AmberPoint and Oracle share a vision of providing customers with comprehensive SOA management capabilities that support modern IT environments and are also complete, open, and integrated," said Thomas Kurian, Oracle Executive Vice President, Product Development. "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."

This immediately makes me think Oracle is jumping into the acquisition race just to keep pace, but also to be able to compete with the SOA management capabilities of Progress Actional.

The responses on Twitter follow:

@ITnegotiator Is the #Cloud next for #Ellison? #Oracle acquires AmberPoint, management software maker for #SOA for advanced computing environments.

@pjtec Did Oracle acquire AmberPoint to match Progress Actional SOA Management capabilities?
