Oracle Snaps Up Clearapp in Bid To Extend SAM Stranglehold

Continuing its remarkable spell of acquisitions, Oracle declares to snap-up the software application management firm ClearApp, which has specialization in developing software that align with the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) environs.

The database giant has stated that the technologies from the ClearApp would help the company in the better administration of its Enterprise Manager Platform, and thereby help in enhancing the service availability to its customers while cutting the IT operations costs.

ClearApp is based in Montain View, California and is currently delivering its IT management solutions to IBM’s WebSphere.
