Oracle has set up a new Application Server division to look after its Web-based products, in an attempt to boost sluggish sales of its InterOffice messaging software, according to analysts.
The unit will be staffed by 500 people and headed by Beatriz Infante as senior vice president, reporting to Larry Ellison, Oracle?s chairman.
The new division will develop and market Oracle?s Web Application Server, Internet Commerce Server, InterOffice messaging software and other unspecified products that are still under development.
Oracle has positioned the reorganisation, which cost Joe Duncan, former vice president of marketing for InterOffice, his job, as a move to put the server side of its network computing initiative in one unit. This will enable it more effectively to take of Microsoft?s BackOffice family of products.
The aim is to combine complementary electronic commerce applications with transaction-based, workflow, collaboration and email packages and sell them as a package.
