World's Leading Mobility and Enterprise Software Vendors Announce Strategic Relationship to Offer Integrated Mobility Applications to the Enterprise

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Feb. 18, 2003 -   Oracle Corp. (NASDQ: ORCL), the world's largest enterprise software company, and Nokia (NYSE:NOK), the global leader in mobility, today announced a joint initiative to deliver Oracle Collaboration Suite on Nokia mobile handsets, signaling the companies' intention to deliver integrated mobility solutions to enterprise workforces.

Oracle and Nokia intend to develop this unique mobile solution for enterprise voicemail, email, calendaring, file management and search capabilities to provide mobile workers with one source for integrated and consistent communication across multiple mobile devices and platforms. Program roll out is scheduled to initiate in Western Europe with plans to extend the agreement to the Americas and Asia Pacific. Customer pilots are planned for second quarter of 2003, beginning in the UK.

"Mobility is now relevant for the enterprise market. Oracle's enterprise experience combined with that of the leading mobility provider, sets a precedent for future strategic initiatives in this market," said Sergio Giacoletto, executive vice president, Oracle Europe, Middle East & Africa. "The European workforce is becoming increasingly mobile and to remain productive, employees need instant access to their corporate e-mail, calendar and files - wherever they are. This strategic relationship is set to provide the right solution for this market need."

Global development teams from both corporations are leveraging synergies between Oracle Collaboration Suite and Nokia's advanced range of mobile handsets optimized for business use. The Nokia 6800, as well as the Symbian-based Nokia 3650, Nokia 7650 and Nokia 9200 series handsets, using Oracle Collaboration Suite Release 1, offer uniquely integrated e-mail, calendaring and contact management capabilities to the mobile workforce. Oracle Collaboration Suite Release 2, which extends real-time capabilities to the joint offering, is scheduled for delivery in the second quarter of 2003.

"Nokia believes enterprise collaboration is a key business requirement for mobile workers. Mobile workers need voice, calendar, contacts and e-mail, all of which are supported throughout the range of Nokia business handsets," said Erik Anderson, senior vice president, Business Applications, Nokia Mobile Phones. "With several categories of enhanced functionality to choose from, the Nokia business platform range gives enterprises a unique opportunity to balance the needs and preferences of different user groups as well as optimize IT spending while mobilizing business processes. We are delighted to be working with Oracle on this initiative. The combination of Nokia business handsets and Oracle Collaboration Suite will allow companies to maximize the productivity and time efficiency of their mobile workers while simultaneously minimizing the cost associated with being mobile."

Independent market research company iGillottResearch examined the benefits associated with mobile collaboration applications and found that mobile access to e-mail and personal information management saves between five and six hours per mobile employee per week, while an average pay back period for investment in mobile applications is a very rapid four-to-six months. iGillottResearch believes that any corporate IT department would be ill advised to implement any new enterprise IT solutions without first considering the implications of wireless technology on that application or environment. Global competition, and the ability to move information, content, and documents around an organization today depend on mobility solutions.
