    SAP announces it's acquiring cloud HR software provider SuccessFactors (SFSF) for $40/share in cash, or $3.4B. The price represents a 52% premium to SuccessFactors' Friday close. The deal comes 6 weeks after Oracle's (ORCL) deal to acquire cloud customer support software firm RightNow (RNOW), and a month after SAP said it was forming a plan to expand its cloud offerings.

    RightNow (RNOW +19.3%) is trading just $0.10 below Oracle's (ORCL +1.7%) $43/share buyout price, a level suggesting investors might be betting on a higher bid arriving. Analysts are generally positive on the deal, with Beagle Research arguing "it brings a lot of current thinking about customers and designing the customer experience into Oracle."

    While Salesforce.com (CRM -0.3%) is off slightly following Oracle's (ORCL +0.5%) deal to acquire RightNow (RNOW +19.2%), several other cloud software names are gaining on hopes they might also be acquired - perhaps by Salesforce or SAP. N +4.3%. TLEO +6.5%. LPSN +2.8%. SFSF +4%. DMAN +1.9%.

    Quick take on Oracle/RightNow: With this deal, Oracle is squarely targeting Salesforce.com (CRM) and NetSuite (N) in the burgeoning market for cloud-based CRM software. While Oracle is a leader in traditional CRM, cloud-based solutions, with their lower up-front costs and faster rollout times, have become a growing threat. ORCL +0.3% premarket. CRM -1%.
