For its part, EMC is looking at support of new content types, such as capturing and indexing voice, as well as how to componentize its platform as an SOA (service-oriented architecture), said company officials in Hopkinton, Mass.

To strengthen its message around integration—and show that it can compete with platform providers IBM, Microsoft Corp. and BEA Systems Inc.—Oracle will pound home its product-backed integration strategy, called Oracle Integration, at OpenWorld.

Over the next 12 months, Oracle Integration, a group of integration products from OracleAS (Application Server) 10g Enterprise Edition, is expected to go through a metamorphosis of sorts, according to IT research company Gartner Inc., also in Stamford. "The main change [to Oracle Integration] is the integration of the Collaxa BPEL [Business Process Execution Language] engine into the ProcessConnect product," said Gartner analyst Pezzini Massimo.

Oracle is expected to announce this week an evolution of InterConnect, a message broker for data integration, that has support for standard messaging through JMS (Java Message Service) and Web services, according to sources familiar with the companys plans.
