Oracle To Bring Siebel CRM To Linux
When Oracle releases Siebel 8 later this year, the venerable CRM application will, for the first time, run on Linux servers.
The independent Siebel Systems, bought by Oracle for over $5 billion last year had not pledged to support Linux.
Still, this news is kind of a no-brainer for Oracle watchers. The Redwood Shores, Calif. company has said it has moved the bulk of its internal systems to Linux already. It has also said it is moving its internal CRM system to Siebel. Ergo, Siebel had better run on Linux.
