Oracle is set to focus on its 9i application server and collaboration suite strategy at its annual conference in San Francisco next week.
The company is staying tight-lipped about any breaking news, but users are keen for more information on Oracle's Collaboration Suite, announced in July, which features email, voicemail, calendaring and web conferencing technology to rival Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Notes.
Pricing and support will also be discussed at the conference, although Ronan Miles, chairman of the UK Oracle User Group, said that it will not be raising any major issues with the vendor.
"I don't anticipate anything earth-shattering. The market is in the wrong state for brand new things," he said.
Phil Dawson, industry analyst at Meta Group, suggested that Oracle will also be pushing the functionality of its 9i database software.
"Oracle is now into the second release of 9i and is building up its credibility," he said.
"We'll see a lot more of the manageability, partnerships with the Linux and Intel side strengthened, and a move away from its core original equipment manufacturers."
Oracle chairman and chief executive Larry Ellison will close the conference on Thursday, which will also feature keynote speeches from Dell chief executive Michael Dell and Hewlett Packard chairman and chief executive Carly Fiorina.
