Vendors behaving badly. Well, PeopleSoft's CEO puts to rest any idea that Oracle's bid for PeopleSoft is anything but hostile. In a press release just now, Craig Conway refers to Oracle's offer as "atrociously bad behavior from a company with a history of atrociously bad behavior." Furthermore, my interpretation appears confirmed that Oracle is simply trying to spoil the deal between PeopleSoft and JDE. "Obviously it is a transparent attempt to disrupt the acquisition of J.D. Edwards by PeopleSoft announced earlier this week," said Conway, adding "If anyone needed any further validation of the strength of the J.D. Edwards acquisition, we heard it today from Oracle."
