Oracle stepped up the competition with Microsoft and Google this week for a share of the cloud-based application market, with the launch of Oracle Cloud Office.

Oracle Cloud Office 1.0 is a Web and mobile office suite that offers a variety of collaboration, presentation and productivity tools. Oracle said Cloud Office offers compatibility with Microsoft Office and is seamlessly integrated with Oracle Open Office, the open source productivity suite it acquired with its purchase of Sun Microsystems earlier in the year.

Oracle also announced availability of Open Office 3.3, which includes new enterprise connectors to Oracle Business Intelligence, Oracle E-Business Suite and other Oracle applications.

“Oracle Cloud Office and Oracle Open Office 3.3 deliver complete, open and cost-effective office productivity suites that are designed for our customers’ needs,” Michael Bemmer, vice president of Oracle Office, said in a statement.

“Customers now have the flexibility to support users across a wide variety of devices and platforms, whether via desktop, private or public cloud.”

Like Open Office, Oracle Cloud is based on the Open Document Format (ODF) and open Web standards. Oracle did not include pricing information in its announcement.
