Computer World UK - SAP: Cloud makes Oracle strategy obsolete


(9-Dec-10) SAP has claimed that the cloud will render Oracle's stratgey of owning the entire hardware and software stack irrelevant.

"That will change the value-proposition and the stack gets lost in the shuffle, so we don't need to acquire all the pieces in the stack when we can change it through innovation."
