oracle hits half century with Sun

Today, Oracle announced that they will be acquiring Sun for $7.4 billion. Undoubtedly, the main reason behind the acquisition was Java (Larry describes it “the single most important software asset we have ever acquired”). Surprisingly, there was no mention of MySQL which came as part of Sun’s acquisition. Wonder what future holds for mysql.

Also, If this WSJ article is accurate, this was Oracle’s half century (50th). Oracle has roughly acquired one company a month since 2005. If history has any indicator of future, we will probably see 9-10 more acquisition before the year is over! 🙂

Yesterday, a colleague and I were stressing about the most elegant way to handle a user requirement within Analytics and we were not even coming close. Then, some body said, “It’s not your problem!” and suddenly we felt a whole lot better. I know that the problem still exists for group as a whole and will come back to haunt us.

Life seems just so much easier when you have SEP field on the problems. For now, I will take it.

But I did find the two best sources to learn:

You don’t need to go anywhere else other than these two. I hope to be a better blogger soon!
