Ndevr is an Australian company that began life in 1998 as a JD Edwards specialist. It has been providing greenhouse gas (GHG) and environmental solutions for Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and Oracle E-Business Suite customers since 2008 and has been a certified partner for a lot longer.
The combined solution is expected to provide Oracle’s customers with the ability to track emissions and other environmental data against targets and produce a variety of reporting formats. The acquisition is part of Oracle’s on-going move into the area of sustainability.
Frankly I’m surprised we haven’t seen more of these sorts of acquisitions in the last year or two as the enterprise software companies take sustainability requirements on board. Ndevr products are ideal because of their existing integration with Oracle’s solutions, but it’s likely that other, more specialised environmental management software companies become targets as the market becomes more sophisticated.
