Several years ago when Salesforce.com burst onto the CRM scene, it was difficult to imagine how the upstart firm could make a dent in the space. At the time, the gorilla in the room was Siebel and the thought of an Internet-based application -- an experimental delivery mode then -- besting the deeply entrenched, feature-rich iconic CRM provider was laughable. Indeed, Salesforce.com's ad campaign from those days, which centered around taking on Siebel, drew more than a few smirks in the industry.

Stay away from salesforce.com if you're a small business. To get any support you need to be a big guy. And, so many of the apps are a hodge podge (not a mashup)- just so clunky and hard to use that it's difficult to get user adoption. It's an old platform that they're now trying to retrofit, adding unnecessary complexity in the process. It is not an elegant solution.
