Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and Sales force CEO Marc Benioff might have had some amazing moments earlier this year but MS’s Business solutions unit that offers Dynamics CRM offline and online is now challenging Salesforce’s solution.
Yesterday Microsoft started offering Dynamics CRM online, Office 365 and Power BI for just 65 dollars per user per month. This is exact same price taht Salesforce.com is offering to its customers.
Such tight integration between Salesforce CRM and cloud based office 365 productivity applications are the key components of the mutual understanding between MS and SF’s CEOs.
SF is also set to debut Salesforce1 application for windows and Windows phone platforms this fall. MS’s CRM application is tightly integrated with their office online and Power BI.
Since MS is now offering both together at low price, it will make lives of salesforce folks tougher than ever.
