Telecom Lead America: Oracle said its users will have the opportunity to license Nokia Location Platform (NLP) from Nokia for use in Oracle applications.
Oracle has developed a built-in link between Oracle Fusion Middleware MapViewer and the NLP.
This link is aimed at removing the barrier of a customized map integration and extends the benefits of global maps for business use to Oracle users.
NLP provides maps for almost 200 countries. By integrating NLP with Oracle applications, maps and business data can align to one consistent, accurate map on a worldwide basis. Oracle users will have the opportunity to license NLP from Nokia for use in Oracle applications.
“Oracle is the only systems provider that delivers integrated location and mapping capabilities in every layer of our technology stack. Oracle and Nokia have a strong record of meeting business needs through scalable and flexible capabilities,” said Jim Steiner, vice president, Product Management, Oracle Server Technologies.
Few data providers have the ability to provide both map data for analytics and integrated platform services for the creation of mapping applications in one solution. Nokia is the only provider of both map data and online mapping services that are integrated with Oracle products.
Oracle Fusion Middleware MapViewer is a J2EE service for rendering maps and creating mashups using spatial data. Oracle Fusion Middleware MapViewer provides services and tools that hide the complexity of spatial data queries and cartographic rendering, while providing customizable options for more advanced users such as developers of geographic business analytic applications.
“NLP will help businesses save time, money and resources while allowing them to gain a geographic perspective on their business, enabling better decisions,” said Roy Kolstad, vice president, Enterprise Americas, Location & Commerce, Nokia.
