Lenley Hensarling, the Group VP in charge of JD Edwards development has apparently left Oracle.  There has been no official word from Oracle but his personal LinkedIn profile confirms that he has moved on to become VP of Development for a start up business.  We have asked for a formal statement from Oracle and will be working our informal network to ferret out what this means to our community. 

Hensarling’s departure follows that of Ed Abbo the former Siebel executive that was running Oracle’s Applications.  Hensarling reported directly to Abbo before he left.  It is not yet clear if there is a connection between the two departures.
