Rumor Mill – Google Forming Alliance with Salesforce?
We have a trifecta of rumors for you this Monday morning, starting with this one from the Wall Street Journal.
According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, the two companies are still working out details of a potential partnership, which is expected to be announced in the next few weeks. The report cited unnamed sources.
The paper said one outcome could be a Web-based offering that integrates some of Google’s online services such as e-mail and instant-messaging with those of Salesforce.com, whose customer-relationship management tools help salespeople track their accounts.
Shares of Salesforce are already up 5% in pre-market this morning.
