Oracle Gets SAP'ed by IBM


SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) and IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced an agreement to expand their global sales, marketing and development relationship. As part of this agreement, the two companies will work together to provide expanded choices for customers that wish to implement mySAP.com and IBM's DB2 Universal Database on a variety of hardware platforms. Following in the footsteps of Siebel, SAP has abandoned Oracle and is standardizing on DB2 UDB as its preferred platform. The deal is estimated at $400 million in sales annually.

BI and BPM: It’s Not as Blurry as You Think


There seems to be a blurry line between business intelligence (BI) and business performance management (BPM) applications.
