Masaaki Shintaku, President & CEO, Oracle Corporation Japan said, "Oracle's advanced data management functions, together with xfy's flexible and highly extensible RAD function will dramatically enhance business productivity with sophisticated applications made possible through data visualization. We envisage that, with the penetration of XML, the time will come when this dynamic combination of more flexible data processing provided by Web services and advanced information processing provided by document applications, will sustain corporate decision-making. Oracle and Justsystems are committed to continued provision of a corporate environment which meets such a new IT era."
