Oracle has enlisted the help of VAR Grey Matter to capitalist on the growing demand for service-oriented architecture (SOA), business intelligence and security technologies.
Under the partnership, Oracle is hoping to encourage more ISVs to migrate to an Oracle technology platform, by tapping into Grey Matter's skills in the area.
Together with Oracle, Grey Matter will deliver a single access point for ISVs and developers looking to build their products on an Oracle database or using Oracle Fusion Middleware.
The partnership follows Oracle's dedicated ISV recruitment drive, which saw over 200 ISVs join its PartnerNetwork in 2007.
Alan Hartwell, vice president technology solutions and channels at Oracle UK, Ireland and Israel, said: "We are experiencing significant demand from ISVs looking to adopt Oracle. This is largely due to growing market demand for SOA, business intelligence and security. Technology like Oracle Fusion Middleware enables partners to deliver SOA for customers in heterogeneous computing environments.”
“ISVs and developers are quickly realising the value of Oracle’s technology suite and its role in allowing them to deliver more efficient standards-based solutions to their customers and the initiative with Grey Matter provides a user-friendly avenue for ISVs to become Oracle enabled,” Hartwell added.
Andrew King, managing director of Grey Matter said: "This is very much a demand driven development. We service one of the largest ISV communities in the UK and are seeing a move toward Oracle as a preferred technology and development platform. Our key driver is to ensure our ISVs have fast and concise access to information about Oracle, migration facilities and ongoing enablement and support.”
