Does anyone know if this is true? Is Sybase buying Aleri? No surprise if they were, see my earlier post on predictions for 2010…
Yes it is. I’ve heard from multiple sources.
Heard Aleri is looking for emergency funding
This seems to come from many sources now. I just wonder when they are going to announce it. According to Marc, on Monday: http://magmasystems.blogspot.com/2010/01/sybasealeri.html
There are a lot of interesting things to consider once the announcement is made. Such as, what will happen to the actual Aleri codebase…. evidently, Sybase is buying Aleri because they want to guard their interest in the Coral8 product that is embedded into the Sybase RAP product. And, if the big Aleri-Coral8 code integration project was not going well, then what would be the impetus for Sybase to keep Aleri around, other than to service a handful of customers.
Well done, Nostradamus.
Just want to clarify that my “Well done, Nostradamus” comment was on Marco’s predicting powers. As for Marc’s assertions, I suggest he read the press release and statements on aleri.com. He doesn’t get to join the Nostradamus club.
Now it is confirmed…
We all know that there is A LOT more than what is generally said in press releases. I will be addressing this in my blog over the next few days.
Yes, I got this one right, just a guess. But I suppose if you do enough guessing you are bound to get one right. Now it would be cool if Reuters bought StreamBase as I predicted too
This will be a great thing for the market. Sybase has what it takes in terms of market position and product range to create a compelling offering, especially given their customer list. The big thing I see missing is a great visual front end but I’m sure they’re deal with that. They need something more robust than simple dashboard tools. I think it’s a good move for Sybase.
Not all agree though. To me it seems like pretty good idea. Better then the Aleri+Coral8 merger that I never understood.
More about this, but no more actual information
