Salesforce's (CRM +4.2%) partnership with Oracle (ORCL -9.2%) will include a deal to allow the companies' apps to "easily share data," the NYT reports. Though the deal may have been sparked by frustrated customers demanding interoperability between Salesforce's CRM cloud apps (esp. Sales Cloud) and Oracle's CRM, ERP, and HR apps, it nonetheless represents a thawing of occasionally frosty ties between the rivals. No word on whether Oracle will reach a similar deal with cloud ERP/HR software rival Workday (WDAY +0.7%), whom Larry Ellison took multiple shots at during the FQ4 call.
