Oracle says 230 will switch from SAP

Database giant Oracle has announced that it has “a pipeline” of 230 companies that have expressed an interest in migrating from rival SAP to its own applications.

Database giant Oracle has announced that it has “a pipeline” of 230 companies that have expressed an interest in migrating from rival SAP to its own applications.

The announcement, a month after Oracle launched its “OFF SAP” campaign to persuade SAP customers to switch, marks the latest stage in an increasingly fierce battle for customers. A series of special packages has been offered by both companies as they attempt to woo each other’s customers.

Oracle has offered SAP R/3 customers up to a 100% license credit to switch to alternative Oracle applications and a free SAP “migration insight” that included an assessment of customers’ business software plans. 

It is also offering a two-year payment plan for the application license and support fees, with no interest and no payments for six months.

The company claims its “pipeline” of would-be customers are looking to migrate because of the costs of re-licensing and re-implementing applications in order to upgrade from SAP R/3 to mySAP ERP or mySAP Business Suite.
