Tags milestones ← Datamize vs. Plumtree: another silly software patent bites the dust → My take on the acquisition of Plumtree by BEA 3 replies on “BEA plans to acquire Plumtree Software” There’s a lot of different takes on this acquisition. Notice the disparity between these two articles: http://www.internetnews.com http://www.cbronline.com/ I have to agree with the InternetNews article. It would take years for BEA to phase-out Plumtree if indeed that is their plan. For now, this looks more like a partnership. I really hope BEA doesn’t screw up a good thing. Plumtree has matured so much in the last few years – the products are so flexible and feature-rich… I just wonder when Oracle is going to gobble them up. Rich: I agree. I don’t think this is going to be a “let’s put a competitor out of business”-type of acquisition, but more of a partnership. Anonymous: I think there’s a lot of truth in that statement you made about Oracle — I’ve been wondering the same thing myself. See my latest post for more on that topic.
