Today, I happened to read two extremely opposite view points about Siebel professionals carrier prospect from two individuals who had decades of experience and have accomplished Siebel carriers.
I am talking about Bruce Daley of Siebel Observer and Adam Hoing of Innoveer Solutions (now Cloud Sherpas). One calls Siebel the devil, the dark side and talks about jumping the Siebel ship right now and the other calls Siebel stable and wants us to stick with it for better carrier prospect. You can read both the articles by following the links below
They both make a strong case and you can be easily swayed to either side if you only read one of them but, reading both, makes you think. I am not experienced enough to provide any insight or judgment on this topic. All I can share is my opinion and let you know which side I am on.
I plan to stick to the Dark Side (Siebel) for at least next 3-5 years see how Open UI develops and the direction it takes. It has the potential to change and provide the WOW factor in one are where it has been always lacking, “User Experience”. Oracle has promised new innovation every year till year 2019 for Siebel which alone is reason enough to calm any nerves that we might started to have.
But at the same time I am keeping my mind open and be updated about what is happening in cloud space. If opportunity presents itself to move on I will jump the ship but that may be more due my inclination of exploring new technologies and keep learning rather than fear of Siebel demise. I am not worried at this point about Siebel and as our Siebel Anniversary survey shows neither are most of you.
This article is aimed at accomplishing three things

The 1st and 3rd points are the most important one. I would really like to know what you think? So, please make some time and post a comment.Will you jump the ship or stick with the devil you know?
If I can get 20 of you (the readers) to share your thoughts, I would consider mission accomplished. Will you help me?
