Oracle launches Cloud Office, eyes Google, Microsoft
Oracle rolled out Cloud Office, an effort to grab a piece of the online productivity suite pie. If successful, Oracle's Cloud Office could compete with Google and Microsoft among others. Oracle also launched Open Office 3.3.
With the effort, Oracle has built in hooks to its enterprise applications. For instance, Open Office 3.3 connects with Oracle's business intelligence and E-Business Suite as well as Sharepoint. Like previous versions Open Office is built on the open document format (ODF).
