Oracle teases 'easy-to-absorb' platform updates, wants 'all' your infrastructure biz

James 51

I once had the misfortune of having to call Oracle about a small program they sold. Immediately the sales droid wanted to know what OS we were running, office suite, network software, the works basically and completely ignored my questions about the one thing my work was interested in. They wanted to come out and give a demo on something completely irrelevant. Ended up having to hang up without a single question being answered about the software I was actually interested in. When they called back handed them off to a manager to spent thirty minutes politely tell them they were wasting their time and in the end he had to hang up too. It doesn't matter what Oracle is selling, who is going to be stupid enough to buy it?
