Week 7: Don't Be Blinded by the Light
By Sandra Haan on Feb 18, 2010
Did you think we forgot about you? Hardly. We've been very busy working on the integration of Sun with Oracle. Well, that and winning America's Cup, but we'll talk about that one on another day. Today we wanted to answer all of your burning questions regarding the Sun acquisition. Legal Entity Combination occurred this week for the US and Canada and we want to get Sun partners started on their move to OPN Specialized.
And your top questions are - drum roll please - answered below in this video FAQ.
What is the impact the overall combined company will have on the partners?
What are Oracle's plans for selling direct and what is the impact to partners?
How will Sun partners integrate into OPN Specialized?
As a Sun partner, am I automatically migrated into OPN Specialized?
Will Oracle continue to partner with other hardware vendors?
How will Oracle map existing Sun investments and certifications into OPN Specialized?
As a Sun partner new to Oracle, where should I be placing my focus?
What can partners expect to see relative to Exadata v2?
How do CDPs fit into the Oracle framework?
How do Existing Sun Partners Place Orders?
What should Sun partners be doing now?
Keep focused on getting Specialized, but take a mini-break and soak up the Sun at the upcoming Oracle + Sun Welcome Events. You'll get the chance to hear directly from Oracle and Sun executives on what the combination means to you, while getting acquainted--or reacquainted--with your local team.

We'll be in touch soon,
