Oracle Buys Convergin – Yet Another Oracle Acquisition

Oracle has agreed to acquire Convergin, a leading provider of real-time service brokering solutions.

Convergin’s industry-leading J2EE-based Service Broker platform enables communications service providers (CSPs) to manage services for a wide range of networks and application platforms, including pre-paid charging. The solution allows CSPs to focus on launching innovative services while modernizing to next-generation networks.

CSPs are increasingly looking to transition from inflexible and costly intelligent network platforms to deliver value-added services. The combination of Oracle and Convergin is expected to provide a single carrier-grade, standards-based IT platform allowing CSPs to effectively evolve their service delivery capabilities at a lower total cost of ownership.

Convergin products complement Oracle Communications’ integrated product suite, including Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management, Oracle Communications Converged Application Server and Oracle Communications service fulfillment applications.

The transaction is expected to close the first half of this year. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.

    On February 11, I got an email from Judson Althoff announcing Oracle’s agreement to buy AmberPoint. Looks like this month’s acquisition total is over the 1.11 average acquisition rate.

    That would double the average if they continue at this rate.

    By the way, in case other readers don’t know, Judson Althoff is the Senior Vice President of Worldwide Alliances and Channels at Oracle. The 1.11 average refers to a post I wrote a while ago.
