Hyperion Acquisition Boosts Oracle's Position In Business Performance And BI

    Why Read This Report

The acquisition will increase Oracle's pressure on the remaining pure-play BI and business performance solution (BPS) vendors, but even more importantly on IBM, Microsoft, and SAP. First, however, Oracle must sort out numerous product overlaps and redundancies to squeeze value from the $3.3 billion investment.
