Oracle plans to offer Indicast's voice application technology as a hosted service and will integrate the technology into future releases of Oracle9i Application Server.
Indicast's voice portal technology will also be integrated into Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle online services, such as my.oracle.com.
Indicast's voice portal technology has already been integrated with IBM's rival Websphere Voice Server.
With the acquisition of Indicast, Oracle plans to offer its customers a range of voice-based services, including private-label voice portals, VoiceXML session enhancement and an execution tracing mechanism that enables continuous sessions across phone calls.
Other services on offer will include data mining, content tracking and pre-recorded audio content, including news feeds, weather reports and traffic updates.
