Oracle's acquisition of PeopleSoft is expected to close at the
end of this week...a quick end to a long process.
What's next for the product set? Oracle has promised
to support PeopleSoft 8 until 2013 and to complete development
of PeopleSoft 9.
And then Larry Ellison was widely quoted as referring
to a "PeopleSoft 10", directly contradicting
earlier statements from Oracle management.
That version would probably be a blend of existing Oracle and
PeopleSoft products, combining the best of both.
I'm guessing that PeopleSoft 10 is the "successor
product set" referred to in the Oracle FAQ
This FAQ is also a good, basic overview of the merger process
and plans for support and training.
Now that the controversy is over, the really hard work for Oracle begins.
I do hope they can pull it off.
