Potentially good news for independent JDE consultants [like me] and
third-party support companies like Spinnaker...
BTW, in most shops where I have worked, the techies do NOT have ultimate
control over the OS upgrades.
They make the recommendations, but the purchasing decisions are generally
controlled by the bean counters.
This will definitely push some customers to the 3rd party maintenance
Not all of us techies are in control of the direction our companies take in
regard to OS upgrades.
There are two sides to every coin. For companies who have no need or
budget to upgrade their hardware, Oracle is effectively killing off app
upgrades for those running on pre-Power5 hardware. I wonder how many of
them will stop paying Oracle maintenance fees.
