Oracle had worked with AddThis prior to the acquisition

In the previous part of this series, we discussed Oracle’s (ORCL) recent acquisition of AddThis. This acquisition is part of Oracle’s strategy to delve deeper into web and social data to hone its expertise in customer insight and offer personalization services.

Before acquiring AddThis, Oracle had worked with the company when they entered into a partnership in 2015. Oracle aims to complement its behavioral web data by joining hands with AddThis. Commenting on the AddThis acquisition, Omar Tawakol, senior vice president and general manager of Oracle Data Cloud, stated that “with the addition of AddThis, Oracle Data Cloud’s offering is expected to deliver unprecedented levels of audience insight, measurement and reach.”
