ABSTRACT
The author comments on Siebel Systems, which he considers the Lord of the Undead customer relationship management (CRM) vendors. Siebel fangs into the neck of a healthy vendor and drain its press coverage and its vital essence. Siebel hides beyond Oracle and denying it the spotlight because whenever Oracle is mentioned, Siebel is surely the next topic.
