Bweek reports that oracle is in talks to purchase at least three software companies that would help it shift customers to a subscriber-based model. JBoss,Zend & Sleepycat Software are said to be the candidates.Ellison recently said that his company is moving aggressively into open source - embracing it & not going to fight this trend. Ellison wants to become businesses' most important software provider and turn customers into one-stop-shop subscribers. Subscriptions are a huge shift from a model where the name of the game is getting huge upfront payments from corporate customers. In the case of open-source and on-demand software, companies pay little to nothing upfront, instead paying a monthly fee for hosting, support, or maintenance. Oracle has set its sight on getting stronger in middleware- Jboss could help here.
