Dumb Question : What does this mean to Oracle CRM?

Will Siebel eventually be merged into Oracle Fusion?


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..
