The senior vice president of Sun’s North America Region Global Sales and Services organization, Randy Seidl moves over to a similar position in today’s announcement from HP. Good for Randy but its so sad to see Sun get dismantled piece by piece. Not only are Sun's competitors stealing away customers, but they are also taking key executives...especially in sales. Losing top executives does nothing but erode customer confidence. The Exadata V2 blew some life back into Sun’s corpus morte but Sun's customers need for Oracle to do more - never mind that the TPC counsel slapped oracle down for misleading claims. How will this end, will there be any customers left by the time the European Union works out their objections to the merger? I sure would hate to see a company with such a storied past disappear because of a botched merger.
