Oracle has unveiled the open source-based Oracle Cloud Office a suite of business applications based on the ODF format available for users over the web or on mobile devices.

The company has also updated the existing open source Open Office suite, featuring a word processor, a database, a spreadsheet application, a presentation application and a graphics programme, to version 3.3.

Oracle inherited the sponsorship of Open Office when it acquired Sun Microsystems at the start of the year. It has now chosen to revamp the suite and make it available both online and on mobiles, claiming it would enable users to "significantly improve productivity, reduce costs and achieve greater innovation across the enterprise."

Businesses wanting to take on the suite will have the choice of keeping the application on premise or accessing it through a software as a service (SaaS) model.

"Oracle Cloud Office and Oracle Open Office 3.3 deliver complete, open and cost-effective office productivity suites that are designed and optimised for our customers' needs," said Michael Bemmer, vice president of Oracle Office.

"Customers now have the flexibility to support users across a wide variety of devices and platforms, whether via desktop, private or public cloud."
