Sap, Oracle alter release strategies

SAP and Oracle are both changing their business-application release strategies, in attempts to provide users with more unified software packages.

Executives at SAP said that within the next few months the German software vendor plans to start synchronising the releases of new applications, such as its data warehousing, supply-chain planning and business-to-business procurement software.

Previously, those applications were released on separate delivery schedules, which sometimes resulted in technical inconsistencies between the different packages, said Klaus Kreplin, SAP's vice president of data warehousing development.

But SAP now intends to release coordinated upgrades of the applications every six months or so to make the installation process less complicated for users, Kreplin said. Oracle is taking a similar tack by combining its enterprise resource planning and customer relationship management applications into a joint product line, as part of an upgrade that's due within the next month or so.
