I drew a little criticism a year ago when I posted a link to a site which questioned whether Fusion would go on general release in 2008. Again, I’m not basing this on anything other than quotes from OpenWorld (and I wasn’t present so I have to take it in good faith that these quotes are legitimate), but it really does seem the case that it’s going to be 2009 at the absolute earliest.
There’s an article on NetworkWorld titled ‘Oracle’s Fusion app suite may not ship until 2010‘. Now I can’t see any quote specifying 2010, but reading between the lines it sounds a lot more likely than the 2008 we were reassured it was going to be.
Interestingly, the quotes apparently come from Steve Miranda (SVP Fusion Apps Development).
“We’re going to be with early customers at the end of next year, and we’re going to be very, very cautious on the [general availability date],”
As they’ve mentioned an incremental release pattern, if the early customers are to get it at the end of 2009, surely that means the rest of us are looking at sometime in 2010?
