Salesforce, Microsoft reportedly in new partnership talks
First SAP and now, perhaps, Salesforce.com?
If a Bloomberg report is correct, Microsoft and Salesforce have been in talks that would bring the two rival CRM vendors back into a working relationship around Microsoft Azure.
Discussion points range from integrating Salesforce products with Microsoft Office, to the more vague report of a partnership that "will make Salesforce's program available on Microsoft's Azure service".
The word "available" could mean any range of things, from new purpose-built integrations with Azure services to specific compatibility agreements for the Salesforce1 platform, or perhaps something entirely different.
