    This is stupid in reality. The major competitors is the on prem crowd. By price discounting in the much smaller SaaS space they’re effectively defiling their own drinking water. Silly silly strategy…

    SFDC is a lot more than a CRM company now, they are playing it much smarter

    Well, if companies are going for a cheaper price in the business SaaS industry and can still make it, why not?

    However, I still strongly believe that a customer will pay a price that is equal to what he will receive at the end (looking at it on a macro level).

    Let’s remember that in SaaS, the important word is Service.

    You can give away your software for cheap, even for free (http://blogs.zdnet.com/SAAS/?p=604), but to have a good service around your software, the cheapest is usually the enemy of the best.

    So at the end, is it the price that is going lower? Or just the quality of service?
