Dumb Question : What does this mean to Oracle CRM?

Will Siebel eventually be merged into Oracle Fusion?

SiebelDude

IMHO, Oracle will probably pay lip service to Siebel's architecture, allay Siebel customer's fear for a while & then slowly nudge them over to Oracle CRM in the next 5 years.

I am sure GE is glad this happened, but SME customers of Siebel & Peoplesoft who run a backend other then Oracle should get ready for the standard finger pointing between software vendors.

If your Siebel instance has a problem & you run MS SQL Server, guess where the problem is..You know you should try running Siebel on Oracle, our other Siebel customers are very happy with this combo.

Just my $.02..

I am compiling a list of analyst commentary (both IT analysts and financial analysts) on the Oracle/Siebel deal. The list of quotes and the links to the articles can be found at: http://www.techra.com/mambo/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=476&Itemid=36

If you know of other quotes/commentary by analysts, please email the links to me at jim@techra.com - Thanks!
