Oracle buys Global Knowledge Software

Posted on Posted in Software

Oracle plans to provide training content modules for all its application products using GKS tools.

Oracle has bought Global Knowledge Software, a developer of enterprise software training automation tools, the companies said Thursday.

Global Knowledge Software (GKS) develops tools for building self-service training courses for enterprise software vendors including Oracle, Microsoft, and SAP. Its former parent, Global Knowledge, sells IT and business training services.

Such training tools for enterprise employees are increasingly necessary as more and more business functions are automated and turned into self-service applications.

Oracle, a long-standing GKS customer, used the company’s tools to build its Oracle User Productivity Kit as a complement to its Oracle Tutor software. It plans to provide training content modules for all its application products using GKS tools, it said.

GKS also supplies development tools to some of Oracle’s competitors, including SAP and Microsoft.

Oracle said it will continue to support customers that use GKS tools to train on non-Oracle applications, and hopes to expand this part of the business. Customers building their databases of training materials on database engines other than Oracle’s, such as MySQL, will also continue to receive support.

The companies hope to close the deal in the third quarter. They did not disclose financial details.

Around 130 GKS employees will join Oracle as a result of the deal.
