The war between Oracle and SAP is about to move beyond enterprise applications to the courtroom.
Oracle said that it has sued SAP “about corporate theft on a grand scale” seeking undisclosed damages. Oracle also argues that the theft formed the basis of SAP’s “Safe Passage” program, which is designed to entice Oracle customers to switch to SAP. SAP won’t comment until it has reviewed the complaint.
“We have just been notified of the lawsuit, and have taken note of the Oracle press release,” said an SAP spokesman. “We are still reviewing the matter, and, until we have a chance to study the allegations, SAP will follow is standard policy of not commenting on pending litigation.”
