There’s a great article in Information Week. It’s an open letter to Oracle CEO Larry Ellison on the subject of software maintenance content and fees. It has a bit of the comedy about it but actually it couldn’t be closer to the truth, and does reflect the view of a large number of CIOs out there…….and do you know what ? – it could be what differentiates software vendors.
Who’s feeling brave?
Update: Rimini Street also announced their financial results today at the same time as SAP (coincidence?) and showed a quadrupling of sales, indicating a change in the way CIO’s see software maintenance as a result of economic pressures.
