Oracle is making job cuts (mainly in Europe and Asia) related to its acquisition of Sun Microsystems. When acquisition took place in 2009 , Sun announced plans to lay off 3,000 workers, or about 10 percent of its workforce. Right now we do not know how many jobs it plans to cut. An Oracle said the cuts will eliminate redundancies and improve efficiencies.
