Oracle has released the second version of its Collaboration Suite e-mail and collaboration software.
The upgrade has a host of new features including Oracle Web Conferencing, which offers online meetings, co-browsing, desktop sharing, white board, and other real time collaboration features. Other new features in Release 2 include support for nine more languages and BlackBerry mobile e-mail devices.
Collaboration Suite competes with products from Microsoft and IBM. Also included in the new version are improved tools to migrate from Microsoft's Exchange and IBM's Lotus Notes to Collaboration Suite and to make the Oracle product "co-exist" with Microsoft's or IBM's software, Oracle said.
Oracle Collaboration Suite Release 2 costs $60 per named user for a perpetual licence or $15 for an annual licence per named user. Oracle Web Conferencing can also be licensed separately for $45 per named user.
