No more big acquisitions for Oracle?

Derek Kuhr Derek Kuhr Profile: Derek Kuhr

A new report from Forrester Research Inc. predicts that Oracle, IBM and other large vendors are done making major acquisitions and will instead set their sites on smaller fish.Well, I don’t know about you, but I’ll believe it when I see it.

Of course, maybe I’m just in bitter denial. It’s just that I have grown accustomed to waking up, thinking I’m going to have an easy day at work, and then suddenly having to go crazy coming up with coverage and analysis of Oracle’s latest major buy.

If Forrester is correct, however, then it appears those adrenaline-filled days are over.

Say it ain’t so, Larry.

    is this like the report issued by Forrester on January 31? one day before Microsoft announced its bid for Yahoo. "Microsoft Will Make Small Acquisitions: Its Size, Visibility To Antitrust Bodies, And Strategy Rule Out Big Deals."

    well, i learned that Oracle has formed a 'global acquisition' group. So the flood of acquisitions will not stop. But no idea if the fishes will be big or small. But the sea is wide.
