Oracle will acquire Global Knowledge Software for an undisclosed sum, to boost it software training offerings.
Global Knowledge Software (GKS) produces programmes that train users on different business software, including that from Oracle, Microsoft and SAP.
“Our customers are looking for a consistent, cost effective training solution across the enterprise to speed software adoption by end-users,” said Ed Abbo, Senior Vice President of Oracle Application Development.
GKS’ products will complement Oracle’s existing training software, Oracle Tutor, along with its learning management software, iLearning and eLearning. Oracle intends to form a global sales unit to extend all its software training offerings across the enterprise.
The transaction is expected to close in the third calendar quarter of 2008.
