Oracle Corporation announced Monday that is has acquired data integration specialist Sunopsis for an undisclosed sum. Sunopsis, which offers data integration products for heterogeneous IT environments, is expected to bolster Oracle's "hot-pluggable" commitment to serve IT environments that support multiple brands and lines of software and hardware. A spokesman for Oracle says the acquisition has already been completed.

Rick Schultz, vice president of Oracle Fusion Middleware, tells DM Review that Sunopsis will "significantly" expand Oracle's data and middleware capability to support customer requirements across areas of business intelligence, service-oriented architecture (SOA) and master data management (MDM). "Customers have increasing requirements for high performance, agnostic data integration solutions that span a broad range of data sources and targets," Schultz says. "Sunopsis has a broad range of support for both data sources and data targets, including non-Oracle systems and also delivers a high performance data integration solution due to its unique extract/load/transform [ELT] architecture."
