Here the conclusion of the study:
In the SMB market, risk becomes a critical factor in the IT decision making process, because SMBs have less access to capital and rely on speed and agility to differentiate themselves. Both Oracle and SAP have focused on the SMB market; today the results that their customers have achieved with their products differ.
This is clearly the first round of the SMB battle, as Oracle continues to announce products and partner initiatives to deliver more repeatable predictable success to SMBs and SAP continues work on its new product line specifically designed for the SMB market. The ultimate winner will be the vendor that can deliver the greatest value with the lowest risk to deployment and adoption. However, the data today shows Oracle has a clear lead over SAP in the SMB marketplace.
