On par with Larry’s acquisition strategy, Oracle (nasdaq: ORCL) will acquire AdminServer, a provider of insurance policy administration software. Though, the terms of the deals have not been disclosed, but the transaction is expected to close in the first half of 2008. For more info, go to http://www.oracle.com/adminserver.
AdminServer will complement Oracle’s existing products. But, any users of Oracle Billing, Siebel Claims, Siebel CRM for insurance and AdminServer should start thinking about the Oracle licensing changes to be made during this acquisition. When two software vendors merge their solutions, there are often changes in software licensing policies to accommodate those changes.
