SAP to kill off TomorrowNow

By on

SAP has said that it will shut its TomorrowNow subsidiary..

The company released a short statement on Monday saying that it will wind down TomorrowNow's operations between now and October. In that time, the company will help customers transfer to alternative products from other vendors.

"Our goal is to assist our customers in transitioning to a new support provider, including Oracle, without a disruption to their support during the wind-down process," said TomorrowNow executive chairman Mark White.

TomorrowNow, which provides support for Oracle's PeopleSoft and JD Edwards software operations, was acquired by rival SAP in 2005 in an effort to convert Oracle's customers to SAP software.

In 2007, however, the company become the center of a high-profile legal feud between the two enterprise giants. Oracle accused TomorrowNow of facilitating corporate espionage operations against Oracle.

TomorrowNow was accused of using customer information it obtained through its support options to access Oracle databases and steal support information.

SAP acknowledged that some "inappropriate" downloads had been performed, but the firm denied that it ever had access to any of its rival's intellectual property as a result of the actions.
