Salesforce.com: 2011 top cloud computing provider

Top 10 cloud provider Salesforce.com pushed its way into the Platform as a Service market with its acquisition of Heroku and continues to grow through Force.com and their CRM service.


#4: Salesforce.com

Salesforce.com

Salesforce.com maintains a spot in the top five, thanks to its acquisition of Heroku. The company singlehandedly forced its way into the Platform as a Service market with this buy, and it will give them legs to hit customers not interested in the patented "Salesforce.com maximum lock-in" feature offered on Force.com and their CRM platform. 

The Software as a Service market is rapidly coalescing into a mature, well-defined space; props to Salesforce.com for grabbing on to something that keeps it relevant going forward.
