After six months of near silence about the problems at Cover Oregon, the project's main technology contractor says it's not to blame for the failed launch of Oregon's health insurance exchange.
Oracle Corp. on Wednesday reported flat earnings for its fiscal third quarter, hurt by a continued drop in sales of hardware systems and a surprise decline in sales of new software _ which the company attributed to a lackluster performance by its expanding sales force rather than lack of demand.
Oracle was so pleased with its latest quarter that it apparently couldn't wait to share the news.
Oracle stumbled in its latest quarter as the business software maker struggled to close deals, a signal of possible trouble ahead for the technology sector.
"Even without these documents, however," Catz says in the letter, "anyone with even minimal IT expertise would have known that the system would not, and could not, go live on October 1."
President and Chief Financial Officer Safra Catz wrote that Oracle provided "clear and repeated warnings" to Cover Oregon that the exchange website would not be ready to launch last October.
