  • Will Oracle fuse BEA into Fusion?

    Market share and technology, a sometimes unbeatable combination, is the raison d'etre behind Oracle's acquisition of BEA, say several industry analysts.

If the acquisition is approved by the US Securities and Exchange Commission, it will still put Oracle in second place behind IBM as the leading application infrastructure vendor.
