23 Feb 2011. US based Oracle has acquired the intellectual property relating to environmental reporting software created by a Melbourne-based developer Ndevr. The Australian software developer Ndevr sold to Oracle the intellectual property pertaining to its greenhouse gas and environmental reporting software for Oracle’s E-Business Suite and JD Edwards Enterprise One. Financial details of the transaction were undisclosed.
The acquisition adds environmental reporting and business intelligence (BI) capabilities to Oracle’s ERP Solutions. Since 2008, Ndevr has been providing greenhouse gas (GHG) and environmental solutions for Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and Oracle E-Business Suite customers.
The company has been a JD Edwards/Oracle certified partner for over 10 years, and was instrumental in the formation of an Australian property and construction special interest user group for the local JD Edwards user community. The original team consisted of the directors and two consultants – This team has since grown to incorporate over 80 consultants, representing many of the most respected and experienced JD Edwards and Oracle consultants resident in the Australia/ New Zealand region.
Ndevr has developed, in native Oracle technology, a unified solution across ERP and BI systems that is integrated to existing business processes and systems. Now with Ndevr products as a part of Oracle, we expect to deliver an improved ability to accurately model, capture, cost, analyze and report on carbon and environmental data, delivered as an Oracle product.
This transaction is part of Oracle’s ongoing commitment to provide best-in-class solutions for environmental compliance and efficiency, delivered as part of the intrinsic business processes of the organization.
The combined solution is expected to provide customers with the ability to easily track emissions and other environmental data against reduction targets for both voluntary and legislated reporting schemes, and further extends Oracle’s solutions for sustainability.
