Salesforce, Google join hands to enable companies run their business in the cloud

Salesforce.com, a leader in Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), has joined hands with Google to launch Salesforce for Google Apps that would enable businesses to effectively communicate and collaborate without any hardware or software to download, install or maintain.

Salesforce for Google Apps is a combination of the Google Apps suite of productivity applications (email, calendar, documents, spreadsheets, presentations and instant messaging) and the Salesforce suite of customer relationship management (CRM) applications (sales, marketing, service and support, and partners).

Salesforce for Google Apps — which includes Salesforce and Gmail, Google Docs, Google Talk and Google Calendar — enables business professionals to communicate, collaborate, and work together in real time over the Web.

In June 2007, Salesforce.com and Google launched Salesforce Group Edition featuring Google AdWords, which has become a valuable tool for thousands of businesses by encapsulating every element of the customer life-cycle — advertising, lead generation, sales, and customer support — in one solution.

With the launch of Salesforce for Google Apps, Salesforce.com and Google are expanding their strategic alliance and delivering a second joint product to enable companies of all sizes to achieve success in cloud computing.

“Google and salesforce.com have always had similar models and philosophies about delivering innovations made possible by the internet,” Eric Schmidt, CEO, Google, has said. “Salesforce.com was a pioneer in Software-as-a-Service and a year ago we joined them in this mission to bring the benefits of cloud computing to businesses of all types. Together, we are making more applications and services available online so customers can focus on building their core business rather than the applications that support it.”

“Salesforce.com is thrilled to be offering Google Apps integrated with our Salesforce applications and Force.com Platform-as-a-Service to the millions of businesses looking to manage their entire office in the cloud,” Marc Benioff, chairman and CEO, Salesforce.com, has said. “The combination of our leading CRM applications and Google’s business productivity applications pushes forward the transformation of the industry to cloud computing. The end of software is here.”
