Oracle is buying data integration firm Sunopsis to graft its technology into its own Fusion middleware.
Sunopsis' products are used to pull data from different sources, such as databases and ERP applications, into one location where it can be used for data analysis and other tasks.
Oracle plans to incorporate Sunopsis' technology in its own Fusion Middleware, making it better at integrating data that resides in non-Oracle products.
"Real-time information access, next-generation architectures and more mixed (information technology) environments are driving increased requirements for sophisticated, fast, heterogeneous data integration solutions," said Thomas Kurian, senior vice president of Oracle Server Technologies.
Sunopsis has headquarters in France, the United States and Singapore. It was founded in 1998 and has more than 500 customers, including the German division of Universal Music Group and the Italian subsidiary of the Total oil group.
