An article of interest on CRM Buyer.com from Rich Tehrani of Customer Interaction Solutions. He asked Marc Benioff of Salesforce.com "what he thought about all of the consolidation in the market..."

Marc Benioff said that "organic growth is slowing in the client-server space and these companies must consolidate to survive."

And that "The enemy of my enemy is my friend. That makes Google my best friend."

Watching parts of "The Godfather" trilogy this morning whilst making the family breakfast, I thought of the Michael Coreleone's line, when talking about maintaining the appearance of a close friendship with someone who actually isn't: "Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer."

Makes you think. ;)

Off to the Bellevue Art Fair today -- have a great Sunday.
