[Johannesburg, 14 January 2003] - South African software developers looking to extend their solutions to Oracle technology have been invited to a series of "open-day" meetings organised by Oracle SA as part of a partner recruitment drive.

At the meetings, to be held in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban in February 2003, independent software vendors (ISVs) will have the opportunity to present their solutions and highlight the markets they address, while learning more about opportunities for partners within the Oracle environment.

Oracle will offer training to suitable ISVs to help them migrate from their existing platforms to Oracle as well as provide a temporary licence for the Oracle infrastructure to enable on-going development and client demonstrations.

The company is also planning to make the transition as cost-effective as possible by providing marketing support and access to its Oracle Partner Network that provides technical and global marketing support.
