Netsuite Looking to Steal Salesforce Customers

Reuters is reporting that Netsuite is offering 50% discounts and up to 100 free hours of training and integration time for customers willing to dump Salesforce.com in favor of Netsuite.  In this down economy pricing is expected to play a bigger role in product selection and Salesforce will likely face some challenges in the coming months.

Salesforce.com spokesman Bruce Francis declined comment but chief financial officer Graham Smith recently told investors that he expected “much more aggressive pricing” from rivals, causing the stock to fall more than 25% in the past week.

Salesforce for Google Apps Announced Today

There’s already been some coverage on the topic from Techcrunch, Mashable, and SalesforceWatch as well as on the official Salesforce Blog so I won’t rehash that here.  There will be a live webcast of the announcement at 3pm EST / 12pm PST that you can watch here, and in the meantime you can check out the quick videos on the basic capabilities:

ZD Net blogger Joshua Greenbaum has been skeptical since the start, claiming that Google’s terms of service make it nearly impossible for corporations to take any product integrations seriously.  Since my company already uses Google to host our corporate mail, having some of this new functionality certainly won’t hurt even if it doesn’t live up to the hype.

Oracle to buy Salesforce.com?

Former FT reporter Tom Foremski is reporting for SiliconValleyWatcher that Salesforce has been shopping itself to Oracle for $75 a share or around $9 billion.  He points out several reasons why the deal would be good for Oracle, one of which is that Benioff could take over for his former boss Larry Ellison when he elects to retire.
