After deal with Microsoft yesterday, Oracle today announced that it has signed a comprehensive nine-year partnership with Salesforce.com encompassing all three cloud computing tiers i.e. Applications, Platform and Infrastructure.
The deal goes like this Oracle plans to integrate Salesforce.com with Oracle’s Fusion HCM and Financial Cloud while Salesforce.com plans to standardize on the Oracle Linux operating system, Exadata engineered systems, the Oracle Database, and Java Middleware Platform.
“Larry and I both agree that salesforce.com and Oracle need to integrate our clouds,” said Marc Benioff, Chairman and CEO, salesforce.com. “Salesforce.com’s CRM integrated with Oracle’s Fusion HCM and Financial Cloud is the best of both worlds: the simplicity of salesforce.com combined with the power of Oracle.”
“We are looking forward to working with salesforce.com to integrate our cloud with theirs,” said Larry Ellison, CEO, Oracle. “When customers choose cloud applications they expect rapid low-cost implementations; they also expect application integrations to work right out of the box – even when the applications are from different vendors.”
