Oracle vs the world

I was reading “Selling Power Magazine” tonight and as I turned the page my eyes ran into an Oracle adv. Now that’s nothing unusual, as Oracle is advertising all over the place. I then glanced down and noticed their standard comparison chart. But GUESS WHAT – the chart was comparing Oracle Small Business Suite against FrontRange Solutions’ Goldmine!. I’m used to seeing the comparison charts showing Oracles SBS against Quickbooks…but now it’s again GoldMine also.
Maybe this is much ado about nothing, but can Oracle SBS really spread its wings this far and compete on one front against Quickbooks and then on other front against Goldmine. I think not. Quickbooks and Goldmine are not really competing products. But yet Oracle SBS, understandably as far as Oracle is concerned is competing against them both.
Very interesting…
