Oracle Corp. is finally bringing to the North American market its Oracle E-Business Suite Special Edition, a midmarket-aimed package of pre-installed, preconfigured software from its 11i suite of business applications.
Oracle has offered the bundle in parts of Europe and Asia since 2002, but plans to bring it to the U.S. market early this year were delayed as Oracle recruited partners to support the offering. The E-Business Suite Special Edition will be primarily sold through Oracle's channel, with partners setting the price and handling implementation. Oracle said licenses for the suite will allow a minimum of 10 users and a maximum of 50.
Oracle will offer its financials, inventory, discrete manufacturing, order management, purchasing, telesales, teleservice, field sales and daily business intelligence applications in the bundle, the company said. Oracle President Charles Phillips is scheduled to discuss the package in a press conference later on Monday.
