What Does the Partnership Mean?
John: "The primary focus of the partnership is on the customer, and putting the customer first. The partnership means organizations will have an opportunity to leverage some of the most innovative solutions in a more productive and integrated way than ever before. It is going to be an exciting year to watch these solution materialize in the market place. From a Microsoft perspective this partnership will provide additional licensing for Office 365 and get more Windows devices into the hands of the consumers."
Greg: "Both companies recognize the fact that technology portfolio’s are definitely a best of breed today. Microsoft has recently released office 365 for iPad, now the formalized partnership with Microsoft. All great moves on Microsoft’s part! Salesforce is recognizing the importance of the market share that Microsoft has with their Office365 offering."
