Dell resells Salesforce.com now!

I was approached by our Dell rep about whether we use CRM and if we'd interested seeing "what they use". Seeing the good buddies Mike and Marc on stage at Dreamforce, I sorta knew what's coming, but a little in disbelief. Sure enough, the rep claimed that they are the only reseller right now. I was like "wow!" (silently), for now SFDC is in its Walmart phase - it's being carried in a virtual Walmart for IT stuff like Dell. Guess you can't get any more main-stream than that.

After some googling, it turns out that the deal was announced late 2009. Can't believe I missed that news... Three cheers for cloud computing!
