Oracle’s Project Fusion making headway

On January 18th Oracle marked its anniversary of its acquisition of PeopleSoft and J.D Edwards with a presentation and reception at San Francisco's City Hall in order to lay down plans for merging Oracle with PeopleSoft and J.D. Edwards software products:

Because several "myths" have spawned from the acquisitions of PaopleSoft and J.D. Edwards, President Charles Phillips sought to dismiss some of these myths:

Phillips sought to debunk what he called "myths" about Fusion, which he noted is no longer called "Project Fusion" because so much work has been done, and the word project sounds "exploratory." For example, Oracle is not actually merging code of all of the disparate applications; rather, it's taking the best features and ideas and rewriting the code, based heavily on Oracle's eBusiness Suite.

Other notions he aimed to dispel: A Fusion upgrade would be costly and painful for customers, and a project of this scale had never been done before. "It has. We're just releasing a new product," he said, adding that Oracle releases new products all the time. "If we hadn't made [a single] acquisition, we would still need a next-generation" product, he added. His overall soothing message: Fusion isn't as scary as it sounds, and customers won't be forced to do anything.

Oracle also claims that it is easing customers into its new product, Fusion by implementing certain features.  Oracle also says that Fusion Middleware already works with old applications taken from the acquired companies.

Oracle counters that it's giving customers an opportunity to ease into Fusion, by implementing certain features of the new application set in new versions of J.D. Edwards, PeopleSoft, and Oracle applications coming out this year. And Fusion Middleware -- the foundation for the new applications -- can already work with the old applications inherited from each company.

Wookey urged customers to start the process by upgrading to these new versions when they come out this year. He noted that worried customers had been holding off upgrading because of uncertainty over whether there was a clear path to upgrade from say, the new PeopleSoft suite to Fusion. "There is," Wookey said, confidently. For the last year customers have been waiting to see what Oracle would deliver. Now that Oracle has given them details, the market will monitor sales of new software licenses and Fusion Middleware in the coming quarters to see whether clients are getting on board or still sitting on the fence.
