    Salesforce.com’s remarkable growth continues, but 2014 will be more challenging

    Ovum StraightTalk

    Salesforce.com’s major competitors – Microsoft, SAP, Oracle, and IBM – have all been busy reinvigorating their customer engagement offerings, as well as their cloud and mobile solutions.

    James Bourne

But should that be the case? When we think of PaaS, you typically think of smaller companies starting up applications in the cloud. However, PaaS has a role to play in companies at scale.
