2008 - New Oracle software targets Salesforce to take on SAP Sales Cloud

The new software, Oracle CRM on Demand 15, is a revised version of a product acquired via Oracle's purchase of Siebel Systems in 2005. Oracle's on-demand software, designed to help companies manage customer resources, will include a browser-based interface and can be customized to run on mobile devices such as BlackBerrys, and included in personalized Google and Yahoo pages. Another aspect of the release is the inclusion of what Oracle calls "Social CRM" capabilities, including social networking and collaboration tools.  The lead component of Oracle CRM's new social capabilities is a new feature called Sticky Notes. This allows a user to mark any object - for example an account in a given salesperson's portfolio - with a comment and then subscribe to the message stream related to that object. Team members can then follow and participate in the conversation around that object, which is all co-ordinated within new functionality called the Message Center.

2003 - Siebel, IBM team up for hosted CRM - Siebel CRM On Demand to challenge SAP Sales Cloud

Siebel Systems and IBM are unveiling a hosted software product in an effort to grab some of the IT dollars small and midsize businesses are spending. The product, called Siebel CRM OnDemand, is an attempt to sell customer relationship management systems via the Web rather than through traditional software licensing. The companies are hoping that corporate clients in need of CRM applications would rather access applications online than by going through the lengthy process of licensing and deployment. The software will cost $70 a month per customer. The companies will release the service by the end of the year. Siebel will initially target companies that have already deployed its products. The benefit will involve the speed with which new users can get their CRM systems up and running, according to a Siebel executive.
