re: Oracle Legacy Apps Holding Fusion Back, Says Forrester
It feels like Oracle is between a rock and a hard place here, but it also seems like they've done everything they can, supporting legacy apps, offering new apps, allowing application delivery in every possible form. In short, they've made all the right moves. That's all assuming that Fusion applications are worth the price of admission. If so, Oracle will see success eventually, I believe. But at the same time, there's tremendous risk: Customers who may consider change will also consider alternatives, and that could mean success for players like Workday and Salesforce, as well as SAP. It's all there on the line for Oracle to win or lose.
