Oracle trying to cover all its (data) bases

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From CNET News.com]

For Oracle, the past few months have been one big shopping spree. On January 31, 2006, the enterprise software giant purchased longtime rival Siebel Systems, the leading provider of customer relationship management software. On February 14, it acquired Sleepycat, an "open source" database maker; two days later it bought HotSip AB, a Swedish telecommunications software company.

Meanwhile, press reports suggest two more acquisitions will occur in the near future.
