Oracle wants to be your best friend

Want to lower your IT bill? Don't buy everything from one vendor.

Seriously, why would you want one vendor to service all needs? It's the absolute best way to ensure that you get stuck with an ever-increasing maintenance bill. The best way to keep costs down is through choice. It's what a free market is all about.
