BEA will sleep with anyone for the right price

BEA isn't against whoring itself out, it's just that it will only degrade itself for the right price.

Pimp1 That is, in summary, the middleware vendor's latest move in the takeover battle with Oracle. BEA has reached the conclusion that it has no future as an independent vendor. Al that is left is getting a good price. Oracle is offering $17, BEA is asking $21.

Investors clearly don't believe that BEA will get away with a 23 per cent price hike. The company's stock is currently trading around $17.5-$17.6.

Now that BEA has put out the for sale sign, the company has to sell as soon as possible. No sensible CIO can tell his boss that they are betting their SOA or integration strategy on a company that will undergo major changes soon.

Especially because a major part of BEA's business is 'keeping the preferred vendor honest'. Many clients buy BEA because want to prevent a vendor lock-in from (usually) Oracle or SAP. Oracle customers will loose their leverage, but SAP customer will loose confidence in the vendor.

An excellent blog!I like it.but The meaning of the last paragraph a bit puzzled.It’s always good to have passions in life to keep yourself from going down the negative path and work towards staying positive.I really enjoyed this. You can look your article comments. This information has really been helpful for most of the readers. I really appreciate the way you have written about this. I will really like to read more on this from you. I know your expertise on this. I must say we should have an online discussion on this. Writing only comments will close the discussion straight away! And will restrict the benefits from this information.http://www.vmoncler.com/
