Joint effort to ease Oracle app migrations
Ascential Software Corp., Westboro, Mass., and Top Team Inc., San Mateo,
Calif., will use the Oracle user group stage in San Francisco next month to
unveil a joint solution aimed at easing corporate migrations to the Oracle 11i
database and applications suite.
The so-called 11i Upgrade Kit, slated to be demonstrated at the OAUG Fall
Conference, is described as a suite of jointly developed templates powered by
Ascential's DataStage data transformation engine. The package will be sold by
both Ascential, a maker of data integration software, and Top Team, a provider
of data management services for Oracle Applications customers.
Paul O'Brien, executive director of alliances at Ascential, said Top Team's
''tremendous amount of experience in the Oracle applications business'' can boost
his firm's place in the Oracle customer base.
The annual OAUG conference will be held in San Francisco's Moscone convention
center during the week of November 11.
