Dell and Salesforce.com said Monday that they will team up to target small and mid-sized businesses.
The announcement, which coincides with Oracle's OpenWorld, goes like this:
- The companies will launch certified Dell-Salesforce.com customer relationship management bundles via the cloud.
- Pricing will start at $9 per user per month.
- Dell will essentially resell Salesforce.com to SMBs and offer integration services.
- Dell's Salesforce integration products include PowerEdge servers with integrated Salesforce.com CRM, a virtual integration appliance and a cloud integration service.
Dell and Salesforce.com have been tight partners. Salesforce.com's data center is powered by Dell gear. And Dell is an integrator. Salesforce.com Marc Benioff and Dell CEO Michael Dell will present in a session at OpenWorld. Dell is also a keynoter.
