Oracle Details Plan for Next-Generation Apps

Plans to link apps could mean cost-savings for firms

According to Charles Phillips, president of Oracle, the next wave of PeopleSoft and JD Edwards releases will be certified on rival software stacks including Microsoft SQL and IBM’s DB2 database, in addition to Oracle’s Fusion middleware. In the future, however, Phillips has suggested that Oracle may simplify infrastructure management by optimizing applications on its own middleware rather than on oustide offerings.

A final decision isn’t expected until the end of this year, but Phillips seemed to be saying that Oracle would prefer to focus on tighter integration by reducing the number of variables in the software stacks. This would ultimately also reduce costs for the customer.
