Salesforce.com's Benioff bests SAP's Plattner in debate | Outside the Lines - CNET News.com

Must have been fun to watch...

The history footnote of the evening came from Benioff, who challenged Plattner to build SAP applications on the Salesforce.com platform. "I want to figure out how to get SAP to build on our platform," Benioff said. "SAP needs to write its new apps on our platform, and I need to help him do that because there is no way he can figure that out...we will be in a war to get more developers on our platform."

Plattner was asked if he would consider buying Salesforce.com. "It always makes sense to look into something. If the Apex platform (the Salesforce.com platform) is really as good a he thinks it is, we should look even more," he said. Plattner also said that he thinks Oracle, where Benioff worked for 13 years, will end up acquiring Salesforce.com
