That whole false cloud debate had to go. Hybrid cloud is too prevalent to be denied.

Not clear on what you're saying is nonsense? That the two companies will cooperate? That they'll have joint product integrations? That they'll bury the hatchet and play nice? All of the above? What about the Microsoft and NetSuite deals? Just window dressing in your book?

Start with "SAP Clings To A Dated Cloud Apps Strategy" and "SAP Hype Vs. Oracle FUD" . As for this article, I don't read anything pro SAP in it. Just pointing out that Oracle and Salesforce will now likely point all their guns at SAP rather than each other.

Wells Fargo analyst Jason Maynard in a note to investors called this alliance "perhaps the biggest move in the industry since Oracle launched its hostile takeover for PeopleSoft," and said Benioff even sounded open to a private cloud deployment of Salesforce on Oracle systems. I wonder if this will force other alliances among the giant vendors.
