A day after announcing a software/cloud services partnership with Microsoft, Oracle (ORCL -0.6%) has announced a 9-year deal with occasionally bitter rival Salesforce (CRM +1.4%). Salesforce "plans to standardize" on Oracle's database software, Linux OS variant, high-end Exadata database systems, and Java middleware. Meanwhile, as an NYT report indicated, Oracle will integrate Salesforce's cloud apps with its own apps. However, it looks as if integration is limited for now to Oracle's Fusion cloud HR and ERP apps. (PR)

    CRM is going to close the gap at 27. This partnership will not stop that decline.
