Oracle has bought Global Knowledge Software, a developer of enterprise software training automation tools.
Global Knowledge Software (GKS) develops tools for building self-service training courses for enterprise software vendors. Its former parent, Global Knowledge, sells IT and business training services.
Oracle is a long-standing GKS customer; GKS also supplies development tools to some of Oracle's competitors, including SAP and Microsoft.
Oracle says it will continue to support customers that use GKS tools to train on non-Oracle applications, and hopes to expand this part of the business. Customers building their databases of training materials on database engines other than Oracle's, such as MySQL, will also continue to receive support.
