Oracle has cut 14 staff from its InterOffice development team, only weeks after questions were raised as to whether the database supplier would continue selling the groupware product into the corporate space.
At that time, the company denied reports that it was repositioning InterOffice away from the corporate market to focus on Internet Service Providers (see Newswire 8 January). It claims the latest move is due to overlap across some of its development groups.
?This is not related to any corporate decommitment to the InterOffice product, but simply a decision to streamline and further integrate the development efforts for this product since it became part of Oracle?s Application Server division in November. The office in Scotts Valley will be subleased,? Oracle said in a written statement.
The staff have a month to find other jobs ?within Oracle or elsewhere?.
