Oracle Buys Data Integration Software Maker Sunopsis

The company says the purchase will enhance its Fusion Middleware offerings.

Oracle announced Oct. 9 that it has purchased Sunopsis, a Burlington, Mass.-based company that produces data integration software.

Oracle will integrate Sunopsis data integration products into its Fusion Middleware offerings, the Redwood Shores, Calif. company said in a statement. That integration will support both Oracle and non-Oracle data sources, according to the company.

Sunopsis offers software products for data integration through its Extract Load Transform, or ELT architecture. The company also produces a range of data sources and target systems.

"We plan to incorporate Sunopsis high-performance data integration technology into the Oracle Fusion Middleware product family and make the technology an integrated part of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), Business Intelligence (BI), and Master Data Management (MDM) solutions from Oracle," Thomas Kurian, senior vice president for Oracles Server Technologies, said in a statement.
