More OEM Deals
Couple of interesting ECM-related OEM deals were announced today, with major, major, large software vendors. First, you have Brainware announcing an OEM deal for its capture software with Oracle. The most obvious fit will be using Brainware for invoice capture in Oracle Financials implementations, but the announcement is pretty vague, so Brainware's capture could theoretically be used in a lot of ways. A couple years ago, Oracle picked up some strong distributed capture technology when it acquired Captovation, but Captovation doesn't do much data capture, so this is a great complement for that....Also, SAP has expanded its agreement with Open Text and is now offering Open Text's full ECM application. It had previously offered SAP's invoice capture and processing technology as well as its document archiving. This is another sign of how ECM is going mainstream.
