“The study, Techtel Corp.’s Technology Demand Index, released on Wednesday, showed that positive opinion of Oracle within the approximately 800 companies surveyed fell from 59.8 percent to 57.2 percent, and its negative opinion increased from 14.5 percent to 19.7 percent, between the first quarter and earlier this month. Oracle began its attempts to take over PeopleSoft in June.”
