Abstract:
Since the 1990s, Oracle Corporation has been expanding its application software business through acquisitions. With the acquisition of Siebel Systems, the leading CRM (Customer Relationship Management) software provider, in September 2005, Oracle replaced SAP AG as the number one player in the global enterprise software business. However, Oracle has to compete with niche players like Salesforce.com and Netsuite, which provide on-line, subscription-based business software services to its customers at lower prices.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To highlight the acquisition of Siebel as a part of Oracle's business consolidation strategy
  • To discuss the impact of Oracle’s acquisition on the commoditised global software market.
