Middle East channel gives thumbs-up to Oracle-Sun deal

Partners of Oracle and Sun in the Middle East have welcomed news of the duo’s proposed $7.4 billion merger with open arms

As a one time sunshiner with no axe to grind. I would however like to balance this article. Obviously, key stakeholders in this merger from the ME want to focus on the potential positives but some of the statements above are purely conjecture of what their view is and is positioned as fact. I am sure (and hope) there will be many successes spawned from this tie up but as of today and for the short term there is no clear roadmap of what Oracle intends to do with Sun (i.e. facts). What will happen to its hardware platforms for instance is a key concern for many. As a key influencer in a large UAE business I percieve Sun to still be a risky proposition untill this unfolds in full which I think will take some time.
