Oracle aims to acquire Sun

Oracle continues to aggressively expand in order to become a 'one stop shop' for enterprise-scale organisations. Through the acquisition of Sun, Hydrasight notes that Oracle's “stack” now encompasses application and middleware software as well as servers and storage.
Hydrasight notes that Oracle has been positioning itself to go head-to-head against yesterday’s IBM and today’s Microsoft. Its recent strategy to 'surround' SAP, rather than attack it head-on, has proven to be successful and has staved-off the continued expansion of SAP in large enterprise accounts. Oracle now continues to expand its largely traditional approach to enterprise software by announcing its intention to acquire Sun Microsystems.
