  • Check out Oracle's SaaS tech, which aims to take on Google Apps and Microsoft Office Web Apps

    Oracle recently announced its Cloud Office suite of applications, taking the battle to Google Apps and Microsoft Office Web Apps.

    Developed by Sun Microsystems before its acquisition by Oracle in April 2009, the software as a service (Saas) technology has now been integrated with existing Oracle products.

    Oracle has also opted for the Sun-developed ODF open document standard, which is compatible with Microsoft Office and PDF formats. The Cloud Office suite's use of other open standards is designed to allow integration with legacy email and calendar systems.

    Shown above is the start portal – or workspace – in the Safari browser. Here you can create documents, spreadsheets and presentations, and access email, calendar and contacts. There's also a calculator tool and calendar display.
