SiliconValley.com | 06/08/2004 | Q: What do you get when you merge Microsoft and SAP? A: Microsoft.: "Microsoft's steadfast denial of its interest in the upper tiers of the enterprise software market has always been comically implausible. So to hear that the company once held discussions about a potential merger with Germany's SAP really comes as no surprise. What is surprising, though, is that the talks ended as recently as a few months ago, right about the time Microsoft told the Justice Department it had no plans during the next two years to move into said market. And they began a day after Oracle announced its hostile bid for PeopleSoft in June 2003. "
