Microsoft and Salesforce.com have just announced a strategic partnership. Salesforce.com is best known for it's customer relationship management (CRM) product and it's other products in cloud computing and social enterprise. The deal will see the CRM from salesforce.com connected with Microsoft Office and Windows to make customers more productive. A Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 app were also announced.
In fall 2014, we can look forward to a preview of a Salesforce1 for Windows and Windows Phone 8.1. General availability of the Salesforce1 is scheduled for 2015. Saleforce1 is a cloud application platform for companies to bring their apps to market quickly. Anything built on Salesforce can quickly be turned into an app for Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.
We'll also see new interoperability between Salesforcea and Office 365. Customers will get access to content they need to collaborate, sell, service and market from anywhere. You can access, share, edit and collab on Office content within Salesforce and on Salesforce 1 using Office Mobile, Office for iPad and Office 365.
