Mark Hall, editor at large for Computer World weighs in with his opinion on the future of Siebel's CRM On Demand, stating "Oracle's move to buy Siebel  guarantees one thing: Siebel CRM on Demand is toast. After all, why on earth would Oracle support a product that is designed to run on IBM's DB2 database? Trust me, it won't."

Some other analysts shared that view. SG Cowen & Co. analyst Peter Goldmacher called Oracle's Siebel CRM On Demand takeover "a dream come true" for other on demand hosted CRM software providers; he forecasts in a research note that the deal will lead to turmoil in Siebel's CRM On Demand sales organization and prompt a number of its top sellers to look elsewhere for work.

"Siebel's own ignorance about the future of its CRM applications is causing concern among customers, Martyn Tinsley (Siebel development and support manager at the Leeds City Council) said. 'At the moment we don't have enough information. We contacted Siebel, and they said they don't know what is going to happen yet. An issue we have is that Oracle ceases support for new products very quickly and Siebel supports old applications for a long time, so there is this difference in mentality of the two suppliers." "Oracle takeover spooks some Siebel users" by Karen Gomm

Sheryl Kingstone, an analyst for Yankee Group also predicts issues for the Siebel CRM On Demand service: "Oracle has much more incentive to optimize for their own software. I can certainly see this is going to be an issue going forward for DB2 customers," Kingstone said.

"It's going to be an uncomfortable relationship," added David Bradshaw, analyst for Ovum Ltd.

"Mark Pitcher, systems manager at the Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council, acknowledged that he is also very concerned about the acquisition, which could force him to migrate to another supplier.

"At the moment we are using Siebel on an SQL Server database, so this could have major implications if Oracle starts trying to make us move to Oracle applications," Pitcher said. " "Oracle takeover spooks some Siebel users" by Karen Gomm

Don Tennant, also a writer for Computer World, writes "Of course, Oracle is still grappling with the integration headaches stemming from its acquisition of PeopleSoft and, by extension, J.D. Edwards, so dealing with the integration of Siebel CRM On Demand at the same time is only going to make those headaches throb more."
