Scala and Microsoft Become (Not So) Strange CRM Bedfellows


The Scala and Microsoft alliance in the CRM arena has merits of mutual benefits, particularly in the short to medium term, but due to vacillating motives of the participants that compete in the other enterprise applications fields, will it last?
