Canon and Oracle join forces to integrate Canon's imaging technologies with Oracle

25 Sep 2011 Tokyo - Canon Inc., Canon IT Solutions, Oracle and Oracle Japan plan to combine imaging technologies from Canon with Oracle software products including Oracle Database, Oracle WebLogic Server, Oracle SOA Suite, Oracle WebCenter, Java Platform Micro Edition (Java ME) and more.

These plans build on a successful relationship between Canon and Oracle in which Canon has embedded Oracle's database, middleware and Java ME capabilities into its multifunction office systems and software technologies for a number of years.

Building on this success, Canon IT Solutions will integrate Oracle capabilities into Canon imaging technology to create a new flexible imaging platform, based on a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA).

With this new platform, which Canon IT Solutions plans to begin delivering in 2012, Canon printers and copiers, including imageRUNNER ADVANCE systems, will be able to connect to Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and CRM applications including Oracle Applications. The platform will support the automating of work flows to achieve increased business efficiencies, including imaging and document processes.

Once available, this SOA-ready platform will also connect to imaging devices such as multi-function office systems and printers. Customers will be equipped to fully maximize business efficiencies.

Currently, Canon utilizes Java ME for its proprietary Multifunctional Embedded Application Platform (MEAP), an application platform for third-party developers, supported by imageRUNNER ADVANCE multifunction office systems.

Users will be able to streamline business processes by utilizing imaging functions such as scanning with OCR (Optical Character Recognition) processing, merging/partitioning PDFs, and form printing.

"This collaboration with Oracle will deliver significant benefits to our users", stated Masaki Nakaoka, Managing Director and Chief Executive of Office Imaging Products Operations, Canon Inc. "By combining Canon's imaging devices and technologies with Oracle software, Canon and Oracle can jointly develop new platforms and services through which we can expect to realize exciting new synergies. This collaboration will bring innovation to Canon's multifunction office systems as well as more opportunities for growth."

"We are thrilled to be aligning with Canon and Canon IT Solutions to develop new office solutions for mid-size to large customers", stated Chris Baker, Oracle Senior Vice President, Worldwide ISV & OEM Sales. "Working closely with Oracle, Canon will leverage Oracle’s leading technologies to create a new, SOA-based platform that we believe will help evolve and modernize the way that companies increase efficiencies across their businesses. We are excited to be collaborating with Canon and taking an important step to evolve imaging solutions. We look forward to bringing this new, flexible platform to the market."
