Oracle has introduced three collaboration applications and an enhanced product lifecycle management tool for its E-Business Suite.

The new products are part of what the company has called a second wave of e-business offerings offering companies deeper integration.

They were announced at Oracle's AppsWorld conference in London, attended by some 8,500 delegates.

"I think we are in a moment of change from early adoption to mass adoption [of enterprise software applications]," said Sergio Giacoletto, executive vice president of Oracle in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

As part of its strategy, to allow deeper connections within businesses, Oracle released three new collaboration applications: Oracle Project Management, Oracle Project Collaboration and Oracle Project Intelligence.

The Project Management application allows project managers to plan and schedule projects, create progress reports, staffing plans and other documents which can be accessed through a web interface.

The Project Collaboration application tool is aimed at giving project team members the ability to see each other's information, such as work plans, change orders and status reports.

The Project Intelligence product offers metrics and analytics for projects, as well as the ability to do opportunity bookings and resource utilisation, Oracle said.

Oracle also expanded its product lifecycle management applications, rolling out an Advanced Product Catalogue tool which centralises all product and component information into a central catalogue.

All four new offerings are immediately available. However, no pricing information was given.

Giacoletto said that the company would continue to concentrate on collaboration applications with more offerings due to be introduced in the near future.
