Mark has a post about Oracle's talks to buy Siebel

April 29th, 2005 by Pete

I saw Marks post this evening Oracle In Talks To Buy Siebel, Reports ZDNet (And Other Oracle News) with quotes from 4 news sources about Oracle in talks to by Siebel, Oracle's websphere and more, SAP seals Microsoft deal to fight Oracle and why Microsoft should buy Siebel.

I won't repeat the links, Marks post has them already. These posts whilst not security related make interesting reading for anyone interested in securing Oracle's database and applications. Oracle's portfolio got bigger recently with its purchase of PeopleSoft it could get even bigger and more complex. As new alliances happen current customers will end up with new products from Oracle or from its purchases. These products will eventually need to be considered as part of an Oracle set-up in security terms.
