Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff unveiled plans to transform his company into the iTunes of the business application world and laid the groundwork for AppExchange OEM Edition, the company's newest service. It will allow on-demand service providers to use Salesforce.com as a platform for creating services and applications not tied to Salesforce applications or even CRM, according to Benioff. Third-party providers will be able to access Salesforce.com services rather than spending time and money building their own, he said.

Salesforce.com doesn't get it. They are all over the place, trying to be all things to all businesses. They can't be. In the end, they won't survive. And they know that. They are losing market share, and their stock is going down. By next year, it will tank. Benioff knows that and he's scrambling.
Imagine a CRM system that connects to your backend and to your ecommerce site, and allows you process an order and connects all business functions, and allows you to run your entire business off of one website? You don't have to imagine - we've been helping companies do that for years.
Jump to:
If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
