Microsoft acquires Proclarity

On April 3,2006, Microsoft annouced that it acquired Proclarity Corp., a software company that develops analysis and visualization technologies that work in association with Microsoft’s business intelligence (BI) platform.

SQL Server 2005 would gain more ground on Oracle with this acquisition. Proclarity brings in more than 3000 global customers. There is opportunity for PeopleSoft/JD Edwards customers using Proclarity to now look at Microsoft Dynamics as an alternative system, Oracle's Fusion should show some effective marketing to not lose dissatisfied customers.
