Breathing Open Air at NetSuite
It has been almost two years since NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N) went public and my analysis of that blockbuster initial public offering (IPO) event. Needless to

force.com  platform and  Salesforce.com’s equivalent Force.com platform  (as well as between NetSuite’s  SuiteApp marketplace  and Salesforce.com’s  AppExchange directory ), there are some different approaches too. For one, although named  SuiteScript , NetSuite’s multi-tenant development language  is basically  JavaScript  versus  Salesforce.com’s proprietary Apex code. In addition, while Salesforce.com is still largely betting on the  law of large numbers  (LLN)  and free-for-all (survival Read More...

SAP to Acquire Ariba, Expand Cloud Presence - First Impressions
SAP and Ariba apparently have good poker faces, since during their recent user events, AribaLIVE 2012 and SAPPHIRE NOW 2012, there was no inkling of this

force.com  partners and for the Force.com -based Ariba Contracts offering, but SAP would be smart not to kill the possibly golden goose. Time will also tell how SAP''s relationships with IBM and Capgemini will unfold in light of these consulting companies'' acquisitions of Emptoris and IBX respectively. Look for more articles on this merger by me as I fully gather my thoughts after having attended both AribaLIVE 2012 and SAPPHIRE NOW 2012.

force.com  with Salesforce Chatter and Force.com should mitigate Workday’s lack of a native social platform offering . At the end of the day, I will paraphrase David Dobrin’s statement in one of his past write ups that Workday is a gnat compared to the gorillas and elephants in the market, but the buzz is catching up.
