Las últimas adquisiciones de empresas de software

Comentado ya por medio mundo, sólo dos palabras: Sun compra MySql, y Oracle compra BEA. Continúa la tendencia a la concentración de operadores en cada área, aunque en este caso se trata de modelos de negocio distintos: abierto o propietario.
La noticia de SUN/MySql:
"The combination of MySQL and Sun represents an enormous opportunity for users and organizations of all sizes seeking innovation, growth and choice," said Marten Mickos, CEO, MySQL. "Sun's culture and business model complements MySQL's own by sharing the same ideals that we have had since our foundation -- software freedom, online innovation and community and partner participation. We are tremendously excited to work with Sun and the millions of members of the MySQL open source ecosystem to continue to deliver the best database for powering the modern Web economy."
La noticia de Oracle/BEA:

On January 16, 2008, Oracle announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire BEA Systems, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise application infrastructure solutions. The proposed transaction is subject to closing conditions, including regulatory, shareholder and other approvals. Until the deal closes, each company will continue to operate independently, and it is business as usual.
The addition of BEA is expected to accelerate innovation by bringing together two companies with a common vision of a modern service-oriented architecture (SOA) infrastructure and will further increase the value that Oracle delivers to its customers and partners.
