Oracle to acquire BEA Systems

Oracle is to acquire BEA Systems in an $8.5bn (£4.3bn) deal that will vastly
enhance the Oracle’s Fusion middleware software suite.

This transaction will accelerate the adoption of Java-based middleware
technologies and service-orientated architecture, increase market share in
emerging markets such as China and advance innovation in enterprise applications
infrastructure software.

The BEA deal follows Oracle’s key acquisition of Hyperion last year.
