MS Executive Indicates CRM Showing Stronger Growth Than ERP
Microsoft credits strong growth in CRM for putting MS Business Solutions over the $1 billion mark in fiscal 2007.
As for ERP, well, the silence following all the kudos for CRM may well have spoken volumes.
According to Jeff Raikes, president of the Microsoft Business Division, speaking at a recent session with securities analysts, the accomplishment was “fueled by greater than 50 per cent growth with Dynamics CRM. In fact, we sold more than 85,000 seats of Dynamics CRM in the last quarter.”
He congratulated his division by repeating the number: “85,000. That’s about the same as SalesForce.com.”
