If Oracle employees think they are safe because they're on the winning side in the Oracle-Peoplesoft mud fight, they are dearly mistaking. According to an unconfirmed report by Cnet, Oracle last week fired executives Ron Wohl and Michael Rocha.
Both Oracle veterans for decades, Wohl headed up the applications business as executive vice president and Rocha was employed as executive vice president of global support services.
The staff changes affect two areas that will be the key to success of the Peoplesoft acquisition. But they also represent business units that have a poor track record and contributed to the bad reputation of the database vendor in the enterprise application business.
Sending the two executives out the door sends a message to Peoplesoft customers that Oracle will try to do better in the future. But the question remains if this is enough.
