Oracle Fusion Middleware is designed to support development, deployment, and management of Service-Oriented Architecture. It includes what Oracle calls "Hot-Pluggable" architecture, which allows users to leverage existing investments in applications and systems from other software vendors such as IBM, Microsoft, and SAP AG. Oracle will also leverage what is called configurable network computing, (CNC) techology that it got from its combined PeopleSoft and JDEdwards acquisition in 2005.
HP, in order to provide standards-based software to assist with business process automation, have incorporated OFM into their Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) portfolio.
In January 2008, Oracle Universal Content Management won InfoWorld's Technology of the Year award for "Best Enterprise Content Manager", with Oracle SOA Suite also winning the award for "Best Enterprise Service Bus".
In 2007, Gartner said "OFM has reached a degree of completeness that puts it on par with, and in some cases ahead of, competing software stacks", reporting revenue from the suite of over $1bn US during FY06, estimating the revenue from the genuinely middleware aspects at $740M.
