With little public fanfare, SAP and Google announced a strategic alliance to integrate SAP's BusinessByDesign and Google Apps during an "influencer" forum last month.

Our app, Cirrus Insight, allows users to view and manage Salesforce leads and contacts from inside Gmail. This type of deep integration between cloud apps yields substantial productivity.
