Although Oracle chief executive Larry Ellison last January painted a humongous target on BEA as its next takeover target, BEA's CEO Alfred Chuang doesn't see his company getting acquired
"Oracle is busy integrating Peoplesoft and laying off 5000 people. Who we are busy hiring," Chuang said earlier today about Oracle's threat during the presentation of "Project Da Vinci" (see vnunet.com for more info).
BEA also isn't impressed with Oracle's plans to become the largest Application Server vendor in the world – a spot currently held by BEA. "When other comps are just trying to be, they are trying to move up their market share to just a fraction of what BEA has," Chuang said.
Still we've seen what Oracle's determination can lead to.
