Oracle says it is half way through its Project Fusion product integration effort, and is preparing to release a number of new products this year.
Project Fusion is Oracle’s drive to integrate the main Oracle lines with those from companies it has acquired in the last year, including PeopleSoft, its JD Edwards subsidiary and Retek.
Oracle president Charles Phillips said the company was no longer referring to Fusion as a project, as it was already half complete and new products are already on the board for release in 2008, as scheduled.
Oracle said it has now defined the Fusion architecture, certified various products on Fusion middleware, defined new product requirements, and enhanced support and developed upgrade tools.
In the meantime, ahead of the first major Fusion launch, Oracle will this year release new versions of its Oracle E-business Suite 12, PeopleSoft 9 and JD Edwards 8.12 platforms.
Each new solution will incorporate Fusion components, said Phillips, including application integration tools and business reporting programs.
