Here we go again: just in time for Dreamforce next month, Salesforce.com is up for sale - again. This time the buyer is - and this is a good one! - Dell Computer!
Ooooookay. Now I can see the idea behind the Oracle buys Salesforce.com notion and the Google version of the same (a perennial favourite), but Dell? Talk me through that one someone!
Dell is of course one of Salesforce.com's biggest customers, so maybe it's like those old Remington shaver adverts where the CEO liked it so much he bought the company! Mickey Dell has taken such a shine to Salesforce.com that he's decided that subscribing to it is no longer enough - he needs to own it. Adds a whole new dimension to on-premise!
Oh wait - here's the Dreamforce conference agenda. Oh look, Michael Dell is on the guest list! Oh well, that settles it. Dellforce.com here we come!
