[From internetnews.com]

Targeting Microsoft's and IBM's dominance in the enterprise collaboration market, Oracle (Quote, Company Info) Thursday trumpeted the immediate availability of Oracle Collaboration Suite Release 2, boasting new real-time Web conferencing capabilities as well as other enhancements.

Kapoor also cited the new suite's compliance with the growing host of regulations that firms must deal with, from the Sarbanes-Oxley Act to HIPAA to the USA Patriot Act and European Data Privacy Act. Kapoor said compliance with new regulations was a priority with Release 2, and he noted that the process has been eased by the suite's technical structure, which has been unabashedly constructed around the company's Oracle9i Application Server and Oracle9i Database.

Because of the deep integration with Oracle's database, the suite can offer new features like flashback recovery in Oracle Email, which allows Microsoft Outlook users to recover deleted messages without administrator assistance.
