Debra, Good job! This is a great topic, article and slideshow. To juxtapose the acquisition strategy between these two competitors was brilliant. The history between Larry Ellison and Marc Benioff is something Hollywood movies are made from. There is no doubt that this rivalry will not only continue but heat up. Please keep covering it.
