Oracle is acquiring Stellent for £237m to boost its enterprise content management offering.

Stellent’s Universal Content Management allows users to deploy public websites, secure intranets and extranets, compliance processes and marketing brand management. The technology can also be scaled to support multi-site management and enterprise-wide content management needs.

Oracle senior vice-president Thomas Kurian said, “Stellent’s enterprise content management solutions enable a variety of people within an organisation to create, capture, store, manage, publish, view, search, and archive all types of documents across their entire lifecycle.”

Oracle said Stellent’s Universal Content Management system could be integrated with Oracle Content Database, which enables enterprises to store and centrally manage unstructured content in Oracle databases.

Stellent has more than 4,700 customers worldwide, including Procter & Gamble, Merrill Lynch, the British Red Cross, ING, Vodafone, and Bayer. The transaction is expected to be completed by the end of the year or early 2007, said Oracle.
