Oracle on a buying spree

UPDATE: Fellow Irregular Jason Wood posts on the Stellent acquisition, including some financial data (see below).

As if they didn't have enough code bases to integrate, Oracle has announced several acquisitions recently. Hopefully, I'll be able to post something insightful on these over the next couple of days, but for now:

Sunopsis
ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) Solution. See my previous blog post.

MetaSolv
OSS for Telcom service providers. Operational Support Systems are network-facing systems that link the business applications (e.g. CRM) with the Telco network infrastructure enabling the execution of key services (e.g. new account activation, billing).
Price: $200+

Stellent
Content management provider (area in which Oracle had been weak) that competes with Documentum and FileNet. See Jason's take here.
Price $440 (cash)

SPL Worldgroup
Described as: "a utility billing and software vendor whose applications include customer care and billing, asset and work management, meter data management, mobile workforce management, outage and distribution management, and enterprise business intelligence."
