Oracle acquires mValent - Waltham, MA

Oracle announced it has entered into an agreement to acquire mValent, a leading provider of application configuration management solutions. With the acquisition of mValent, Oracle is expected to enable customers with the ability to collect, compare and reconcile deep configuration information of complex systems. The mValent solution ensures consistent configuration across IT environments and also provides agile support for ongoing environment and technology changes.

As usual, Ellison seemed to find another hot space to sink his teeth into. This move is good news for Oracle and the application deployment market as a whole. But I think the lingering question is what will Oracle do with mValent? Will they evolve the mValent Integrity product to be surrounded by and dependent on Oracle-only products. Where does that leave the huge customer base that relies on other middleware offerings like IBM WebSphere, RedHat JBoss, BMC Bladelogic, HP Server Automation, IBM Build Forge, etc.? Phurnace is now the only vendor-neutral automated deployment vendor - - a fact that has serious implication for customers with mixed technology environments. I can talk all day about this topic.
