First Oracle, then SAP and now, believe it or not – Salesforce!

SAP to support its Enterprise Software in Microsoft Azure

I guess it all started to come together with the public cloud and the Enterprise back in June last year when Microsoft and Oracle announced a partnership. I remember a few months later being at IPEXPO 2013 in London and introducing myself to a guy on the Oracle stand as a “friend”. He was a…
