Canon, Oracle to merge imaging, software technologies


Oracle, Oracle Japan, Canon Inc, and Canon IT Solutions have revealed plans to combine imaging technologies from Canon with Oracle’s software products, including Oracle Database, Oracle WebLogic Server, Oracle SOA Suite, Oracle WebCenter, and Java Platform Micro Edition (Java ME).


The partnership is built on a long, successful relationship between Oracle and Canon, wherein Canon has integrated Oracle’s database, middleware and Java ME capabilities into its multifunction office systems and software technologies.


Canon IT Solutions is also planning to create a flexible imaging platform based on a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) by integrating Oracle capabilities into its imaging technology. With this new platform, which Canon plans releasing in 2012, Canon copiers and printers will be able to connect to Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and CRM applications including Oracle Applications. The platform will support automation of workflows to increase business efficiencies. This SOA-ready platform, once available, will also connect to imaging devices such as multi-function office systems and printers.
