Oracle Corporation has just received regulatory approval from the European Commission for its acquisition of Sun Microsystems. This decision gives the go-ahead for the deal that has been waiting for an outcome since last September. Oracle is planning a day long event next week for customers, partners and the press, most likely to cover its intentions once the deal is complete.

Both companies have a strong Identity Management presence with their own product suites deployed at many important customer sites. It will be vital for the success of the acquision to manage these customers going forward and to build a solution set for the future that is greater than the sum of its parts. I will be watching with interest to see what Oracle has to say on this subject.
