Ellison to Discuss Fusion Applications

Oracle CEO Larry Ellison will discuss the company's long-awaited Fusion Applications during a keynote address Wednesday, according to Thomas Kurian, executive vice president of product development.

During a question-and-answer session with reporters, Kurian declined to directly answer questions about Fusion Applications, but said those interested in more information should be sure to watch Ellison's speech.

"Please attend the session, he'll give you lots of information," he said.

Rumors that Ellison would address Fusion Applications had been swirling for some days prior to OpenWorld. Ellison's annual address is generally reserved for the company's most important news announcement.

Fusion Applications, first announced several years ago, are supposed to combine the best elements of Oracle's various business software product lines into a next-generation suite.

After some delays, the software has inched closer to an initial release. Earlier this year, Ellison said during an earnings conference call that Fusion Applications were "code-complete."
