Summary

Oracle today presents a management portfolio that addresses the core Oracle solutions: application management, middleware management, and database management. This focus provides Oracle clients with immediate benefits. It is also a stepping stone for Oracle's enterprise management strategy: Instead of putting together a portfolio of infrastructure management solutions, Oracle intends to build on today's portfolio to address the next generation of management solutions and the all-important articulation of business services. As infrastructure management solutions are increasingly commoditized, Oracle believes that the next generation of IT management solutions will have to provide business value by addressing the integration of existing solutions and by providing a complete IT life-cycle integration of IT services into business processes. This could very well make Oracle the fifth major vendor of IT management software within the next three years.
