Today in Cloud

Lotsa Google in the news today. The Force.com-App Engine partnership with Salesforce.com is nothing really new — the two linked Force.com and Google Apps a while back — and won’t likely show results for months or years to come. Of course, one would be remiss to ignore the immense potential for both companies as their cloud and SaaS offerings take off. Google’s other big news isn’t really news as much as it is a declaration that it won and the desktop (read: Microsoft) lost. There might not be much debate in the consumer app arena, but enterprise apps are still largely local. The big news, Google promises, will come tomorrow. I can’t wait.
