Ayer lunes 20 de Abril del 2009, recibí la noticia que Oracle está en proceso de adquisición de Sun Microsystems. No se si sea buena o mala noticia pero esto genera un posicionamiento adicional para Oracle en el mundo de TI. Sera cuestion de tiempo de ir reconociendo y entendiendo mucho mejor la propuesta de valor de esta adquisiciÃ³n.
Como lider de PEOUG, recibo comunicaciones directas de Oracle Corporation. El dia de hoy martes 21 de abril del 2009, recibí un email de Jeb Dasteel | Senior Vice President & Chief Customer Officer de Oracle Global Customer Programs comunicandonos lo siguiente (en ingles):
To our global users group leadership,
Oracle announced that we have agreed to acquire Sun Microsystems. This acquisition is consistent with our strategy of offering complete, open, and integrated solutions. We believe that combining best-in-class enterprise software and mission-critical computing systems will add significant value to our customers. For the latest information, visit http://www.oracle.com/Sun.
Our customers have been asking us to step up to a broader role to reduce complexity, risk, and cost by delivering a highly-optimized standards-based product stack. Oracle plans to deliver these benefits AFTER THE CLOSING by offering a broad range of products, including servers and storage, with all the integrated pieces: hardware operating system, database, middleware and applications. We plan to preserve and enhance investments made by our customers, while we continue to work with our partners to provide customers with choice. This is a transformational event for the IT landscape, and it will help us build even more strategic relationships with our customers.
The proposed transaction is subject to Sun stockholder approval, certain regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions. Until the deal closes, each company will continue to operate independently, and it is business as usual. Oracle and Sun will continue to operate as separate businesses, each continuing to support their users group communities.
Oracle is very focused on customer satisfaction, and plans to provide for a smooth transition without customer disruption. Please rest assured that we will communicate any updates throughout this process to you, our global users group leadership, when the information becomes available. After the transaction closes, we plan to consult with Oracle’s users group leadership regarding the Sun customer communities and our proposed next steps.
In the meantime, we ask that you direct any questions or comments you may have regarding the acquisition or Sunâ€™s users group communities to Dian Thompson (+1-201-400-2450) directly. We appreciate your consideration in this matter.
Esperamos recibir mas informaciÃ³n e ir digiriendo esta noticia.
