Salesforce’s cloud based offering is now to be used by computer maker Hewlett-Packard after ditching Oracle’s Seibel CRM software.
As what International Business Times has said, it is predicted by an analyst that HP is deciding to sign a mega CRM deal with Salesforce for around 35, 000 to 40, 000 seats, and abandoning Oracle in the event.
Since the computing head hired Leo Apotheker as its CEO, the relationship between Oracle and HP has been damaged. Apotheker is the former employer of SAP in which a lawsuit regarding with the copyright has been filed against said CRM system by Oracle, hence, such former relationship resulted to anger by Oracle to such hiring.
According to Trip Chowdhry, an analyst with Global Equities Research told IBT that HP is completely dumping down Oracle Siebel, which contacts told him has made Oracle (ORCL) very infuriated.
Contacts told him that by shifting to Saleforce would make HPQ save 40 percent-50 percent over ORCL Siebel.
On the other hand, Salesforce is very excited to close the deal between them and HP before its Dreamforce conference next month.
