Partner News Podcast: Oracle app integration, VMware/Dell OEM deal

This week we discuss Oracle's plans to get all of its acquired technologies talking to one another, plus news about Dell embedding VMware hypervisors in its servers.

Oracle is talking up Application Integration Architecture (AIA), a strategy designed to get all of its enterprise applications on the same page. What will this plan mean for Oracle partners who sell these products? The staff of answers that question, then talks about two recent moves by Dell: its virtualization push with VMware and the closing of its MessageOne acquisition. The show closes with a discussion about the complexity of selling unified communications.
