Oracle CRM vs. Salesforce Smackdown Poll Results

salesforce.com logoInteresting, albeit not surprising, poll results about which CRM application is the most popular: Oracle OpenWorld CRM Smackdown!

It’s Salesforce.com by a long shot, but are Oracle, Microsoft and SAP gaining? The post goes on to ask: “Does Oracle need to own Salesforce to own on-demand CRM?”

The answer digs into market share, functionality, analyst opinion, and differentiation. Definitely worth the read.

CRM Smackdown: Oracle vs. Salesforce.com

Benioff vs. Ellison smackdownPaul Greenberg published a great review of Oracle OpenWorld today (sessions = good; keynotes = really bad).  He includes some of the main Ellison vs. Benioff sideshow highlights and provides some good details on Oracle’s CRM roadmap. CRM Market Analyst Lauren Carlson takes it step further with a summary of each vendor’s capabilities in her post: Oracle OpenWorld CRM Smackdown.  She also includes an interesting survey, which is still open for input. She poses the questions:

1) Who do you view as the leader in CRM?

  • SAP
  • Oracle
  • Salesforce.com
  • Microsoft
  • Other:
2) Will Oracle acquire Salesforce.com?
  • Yes
  • No
3) Who’s more full of it?
  • Benioff
  • Ellison
  • It’s a tie.

You can take the survey here. The results will be interesting.

Cloud in a Box – Thanks SNL

Following the tweet stream from Oracle OpenWorld today as Marc Benioff pushes the “no cloud in a box” message and warns of false clouds, I couldn’t seem to get this song out of my head. Thank’s for the laugh SNL! Now who’s going to create the Iron Man Oracle parody for Dreamforce?
