Oracle Acquires GoldenGate To Bolster Data Integration

Oracle has added real-time data-integration capabilities with the acquisition of privately held GoldenGate Software, enhancing its ability to ensure that vital business applications aren't disrupted during migrations and upgrades. The announcement confirms reports that we wrote about five weeks ago here in Global CIO.

Oracle has added real-time data-integration capabilities with the acquisition of privately held GoldenGate Software, enhancing its ability to ensure that vital business applications aren't disrupted during migrations and upgrades. The announcement confirms reports that we wrote about five weeks ago here in Global CIO.Emphasizing that the addition of GoldenGate gives Oracle a "comprehensive heterogeneous data-integration platform," the announcement from Oracle also said customer benefits would include enhanced real-time data movement, improved business intelligence via replication and synchronization across different types of systems, and an additional layer of assurance for business-critical applications.

In last month's post on rumors about this deal, we noted the following:

"The two companies have had a deep relationship for some time and while a deal has been kicked around in the past, talks stalled because GoldenGate always priced itself higher than Oracle was willing to spend," according to a report from The 451 Group on SeekingAlpha.

As Oracle eyes continuing growth in a market previously served by a slew of vendors, the need for such real-time data-migration and integration tools will increase. Without offering details, the Seeking Alpha post says the rumor mill is guessing that the reported GoldenGate deal would be much larger than the Conformia acquisition.
