Oracle OpenWorld: Fusion apps ready within months for 'brave' Oracle customersby
Oracle's next generation Fusion applications have been a long time coming, but "particularly brave" customers will be able to purchase them early next year.
“Next year” - that was the loose delivery time scale set down by Oracle CEO Larry Ellison at the 2009 OpenWorld conference when he talked delegates through details of the next generation Fusion applications.
So now Fusion is here, presumably pressure will be heaped on users to upgrade ASAP? Not at all, insisted Ellison. "Are we encouraging all customers to immediately convert to Fusion? No!" he said. "Unless there’s a reason for you to be an early adopter of Fusion or you’re a particularly brave customer, no. We think there will be around 100 customers next year.
