Oracle, BEA: Done Deal?

By The VAR Guy 2 comments

The VAR Guy isn’t going to spend much time analyzing Oracle’s $6.6 billion takeover offer for BEA Systems. He has only one piece of advice for BEA management: Take the offer. Even if IBM comes calling with a counter offer, Oracle is local and has proven that it knows how to acquire companies very effectively.

  1. This is win win for both Oracle and BEA as oracle is good in aquisition and integrating suite of products from the aquire company. The customers of BEA also can be happy about the future support and releases as it happened with siebel and peoplesoft.

    On the contrary for oracle it helps in strengthening its middleware position with SAP and IBM. what else we need..

  2. Also of note: One of Oracle’s top channel execs, Rauline Ochs, built BEA’s partner program a few years back. So BEA partners would be respected within Oracle’s growing channel organization.
