connectivity - integration Oracle - SQL server

Ton
I have a question about connectivity between different databases.
Oracle, DB2400 and SQL_server.

It is easy to integrate application products that are running on
different DB platforms?
What products can be used to achieve this? Our consultant is
mentioning .NET but then we have to run everything on SQL server.

Currently we are running on Oracle but our third party generic
applications are first developed for SQL server and later ported to
Oracle (So Oracle has no priority for them)

We are now looking to additional applications that are only available
on SQL server and we like to integrate these applications in our
current environment that is running on Oracle DB. The information I
get is that the integration is much easier to achieve with products
like MS .NET if all the application will run on SQL server
Oracle seems to be less open. Do not get me wrong with less open: I
mean that there are less integration products or programmer skills
available on the market.

We can choose to migrate totally for SQL server. Additional info: We
run on Win2000. Hardware platforms like Unix is no issue)

What is your opinion?

Gentlemen,

Thank u very much for your response.
Sybrand: As I said we are currently on Oracle with third party
products that
are ported to Oracle. We are pleased with Oracle and it was the
standard database in our organization. We found out that we are always
play a 2nd role with the vendors of the packages we are using. The
first new releases and patches are always for SQL server. So far no
problem we can live with this. BUTTTTT !!

We want to replace our back office applications and all the preferred
vendors on the short list are only supporting SQL server.

Sybrand: " Guess you will most benefit from locking yourself in the
closed world
of Microsoft. "

I hope that u will understand that the business is making the money
and that not database platform is making the choice which application
is the best for the business.

I really value your highly skilled Oracle knowledge but if questions
like mine passes about MS SQL server or whatever: then you get "
emotionally involved ". And that is a pity.

Our consultant who is mentioning about the MS .NET is totally not
involved with Microsoft and doesn't care if we using UNIX, MS, Oracle,
DB2 or SQL server
but he is facing a dilemma. Our current ported applications run on
Oracle DB but are originally SQL server products and the new
applications to buy (which will have to talk with the current
applications) are only available on QL server.

The current applications can be replaced moving them to their original
SQL server background. According to our consultant .NET would be the
easiest way to
Integrate all these applications with each other. This is the issue.
I hope u will understand that I'm not promoting SQl server but only
tries to find a solution for our situation.
U cannot tell to the business " guys we do not give you the best
available application products on the market because they are not
running on Oracle database "
Sybrand, I hope u get my point and please do not get emotionally
involved. Once again I appreciate what u do here on the forum and I
have made use of help myself in the past frequently.
Thanks
