Don’t let emotions get in the way of the situation; take the deal on its face value.
The 27th January 2010 saw Oracle’s bid for Sun Microsystems go through. Our customers have expressed concerns about the impact that this will have on their business, so we polled our customer base to find out what the main worries for end users were. The results were:
- Potential loss of vendor leverage and increased dependency on Oracle
- Questions on strategic intent for platform and software products
- Changes to the culture of Oracle and Sun
