ABSTRACT
The article reports on the potential impact of the plan of Oracle to acquire Siebel Systems on the latter's service alliance with IBM. Siebel had used IBM technology and infrastructure since it launched the Siebel On-demand service. According to Oracle president Charles Phillips, new Siebel OnDemand customers are running on the technology by Oracle and the existing ones will be transitioned throughout the rest of 2006. Industry critics agree that Oracle seems to support any customers that use DB2, the data management software and hardware of IBM.
