Salesforce for Google Apps Announced Today

April 14, 2008 at 8:51 am 1 comment

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.

    The topic of integration with Salesforce (in general) doesn’t get enough attention. Google Apps is nice. But what about linking my Salesforce data to my back-end accounting system? Or customer service?

    Pervasive claims to have a lot (1000+) customers doing Salesforce integration with back-end systems. That’s where the real value is – not google apps. Check their blog posting http://cs.pervasive.com/blogs/data_integration_blog/default.aspx
