ORACLE PLANS TO OVERTAKE IBM & MICROSOFT IN E-COMMERCE RACE

By CBR Staff Writer

Oracle Corp believes it will be able to overtake rivals Microsoft Corp and IBM Corp in the electronic commerce race with its Internet Commerce Server. The system, formally known as Project Apollo has been in beta testing with Motorola Inc for some months and will move from current limited to wide scale production over the summer. The company is targeting the product at brand manufacturers, media, telecommunications, retail and banking markets. Internet Commerce Server enables businesses to create a storefront on the Internet for customers to browse, purchase and pay online while at the same time integrating with existing systems. Oracle’s electronic commerce marketing manager Jenny Edmondson believes the commerce server will give the company an advantage over similar systems from Microsoft and IBM. She said We believe most of our customers are working with us because we have an open, flexible approach. Edmondson said Oracle chose Motorola to beta test the Internet Commerce Server because it is interested in both business to business and business to consumer services. We feel we have a very competitive offering. The strength of the Oracle database will ensure scalability and meet customer needs. Edmonson conluded.
