Oracle buys Primavera

A notíca abaixo deverá ter um impacto reduzido no mercado de software de Gestão de Projetos brasileiro, mas é bom ficar de olho...

Oracle continued its buying binge Wednesday, buying Primavera Systems, which makes project-management software. In this case Oracle isn’t buying customers or its way into a new market. It’s buying technology.
he conventional wisdom about Oracle’s acquisition strategy is that the company is buying so-called maintenance revenue, the deferred payments that are a part of most software sales. While that was arguably the case with some of the company’s earlier purchases, such as PeopleSoft and Seibel, lately Oracle has been buying companies for other reasons, such as gaining expertise in a particular industry. Last week, we wrote that Oracle’s acquisition of Advanced Visual Technology – a company most people have never heard of – was intended to help it enter the retail market.
