Note on Oracle's Acquisition
of Sun Microsystems
Written by Mary Elizabeth McNeely,
President of DOUG
In late January,
Oracle announced the finalized acquisition of Sun. This is
undoubtedly one of the most significant events the technology community
will witness in the next few years.
I attended the post-acquisition press conference Wednesday at the
Oracle campus in Redwood Shores, California. It was a marathon
event, lasting 4 1/2 hours. Absolutely fascinating!
I encourage you to view the conference online. The webcast is
broken into several files – the longest one is an hour, so you can
easily view the segments at your leisure. See
How this merger will affect the Dallas Oracle Users Group, is still an
unfolding saga. I’ll keep you posted
