Oracle News Headlines


Is Oracle’s Fusion Fizzling?

An article published on discusses the departure of John Wookey, senior vice president in charge of apps development and is Oracle’s middleware software application Fusion project possibly foundering?

Now Ellison is after BEA Systems, and there’s speculation that H-P or IBM (SAP says it won’t play) could start a bidding war and run up the price. I suspect that won’t happen, but I’m not placing any bets. Meanwhile, this week’s announcement that John Wookey is leaving the company poses yet another interesting question: Is Fusion, Oracle’s grand scheme to unify middleware it has acquired or developed over the last few years, in serious trouble?

I don’t know, and probably none of us will find out for sure until we head for OracleWorld in San Francisco next month. But something’s not right here.

First of all, the acquisition of BEA is surprising. The Fusion project is difficult enough. Why add yet another layer of complexity -- and a very thick one at that -- by adding WebLogic to the middleware mix? And I’m not altogether sure the deal would pass muster with the Feds.
