Oracle Honored with a Tech Innovator Award in the Business Enterprise Category by CMP Channel’s VARBusiness


Oracle today announced that it has received a CMP Channel VARBusiness 2007 Tech Innovator award in the Business Enterprise category for the Oracle SOA Suite, a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware. The fifth annual Tech Innovators Awards celebrate the most innovative products, people and personalities in the industry and highlight emerging products and technologies currently sold through the IT Channel.

Oracle SOA Suite is a comprehensive, standards-based set of middleware products used to easily build, deploy and manage Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA). The suite’s hot-pluggable capabilities enable customers to take advantage of the many benefits SOAs provide, while leveraging their current middleware technologies and avoiding a costly rip and replace project. In addition, Oracle SOA Suite enables high levels of service quality with a unique Grid architecture for advanced scalability and performance using low-cost commodity hardware. Using the Suite, organizations can seamlessly connect, extend and evolve their existing IT systems to rapidly deliver new business services. Oracle SOA Suite is comprised of the best-in-class SOA components of Oracle Fusion Middleware and supports Oracle and non-Oracle application servers and messaging buses, including IBM WebSphere, BEA WebLogic and JBoss Application Servers.

“Innovation is truly the heart of the technology industry, and the winners of this year’s VARBusiness Tech Innovator Awards have taken innovation to the next level,” said Robert C. DeMarzo, vice president and editorial director, CMP Channel. “We congratulate each and every one of this year’s Tech Innovator Award winners.”

The Tech Innovator awards were awarded in the following categories: Managed Services; Voice over IP; Virtualization; Storage; Wireless; Servers; PCs/Workstations; Handhelds; Portable PCs; Display/Projection; Connectivity/Data Networking; Security Printing & Imaging; Business Software: Enterprise Applications and Infrastructure; and Business Software: SMB Applications and Infrastructure.

For each category, at least two judges from a select group of top solution providers and integrators rated each entry on characteristics such as usefulness, the “new and improved” factor, price/performance, revenue potential and overall “coolness.” The process leads to three VARBusiness Tech Innovator finalists for each category, with the top scoring product in each category earning the VARBusiness Tech Innovator award.

The awards were presented at the XChange Tech Innovators conference in Miami, Florida on Oct. 8, 2007. The XChange conference brings together more than 130 of the channel’s most unique, forward thinking integrators with the objective of helping them identify and consider alternative technologies and companies to do business with.
