UK-based car hire company Holiday Autos is suing an unnamed German software firm over its failure to implement an Oracle reservation system. The company abandoned the project after it ran 10 months over schedule and has now implemented database technology from Progress Software instead. A spokeswoman for Holiday Autos said: "Holiday Autos worked with the German company as much as they could to help them meet the project deadline but they eventually had to pull the plug." The Oracle vendor cannot be named because Holiday Autos is taking legal action against them.
