And Maintenance

Oracle maintenance margins

ERP lawsuits involving Oracle, SAP and others have the potential to reshape the lucrative ERP maintenance fee marketplace. Manufacturing AUTOMATION asked lawyer and ERP consultant, Jonathan Gross, to break down the issues.

Imagine that you owned a chicken that laid one golden egg after another. Then imagine that a thief broke into your barn every day and stole your precious golden eggs. If you caught the thief, you’d probably sue his pants off and consider administering other, less legal forms of punishment. And that’s exactly what Oracle is doing to Rimini Street, TomorrowNow and SAP– the suing part, that is.

In two separate lawsuits, Oracle claims that Rimini and TomorrowNow stole its intellectual property (IP). Adding insult to injury, Oracle says that these companies then used the stolen IP to compete against it in the ERP maintenance and support market. SAP, which acquired TomorrowNow, is claimed to have been complicit in TomorrowNow’s theft.

Oracle’s Alleges “Massive Theft”

According to the lawsuit, Oracle’s customers were given passwords so that they could access Oracle’s maintenance and support databases. Those customers allegedly then turned around and gave the passwords to Rimini & TomorrowNow.

Oracle admits that nothing was wrong with this, as long as access rights weren’t exceeded. You’ve probably guessed that Oracle thinks that the defendants crossed the line - though, you probably wouldn’t have guessed that Oracle is alleging massive corporate fraud and theft of confidential information.
