Salesforce.com has previewed the latest additions to its on-demand customer relationship management software offerings.
Sforce 6.0, available in June, lets companies connect their on-demand salesforce.com CRM systems with the rest of their enterprise applications and infrastructure.
It replaces traditional proprietary, complex and expensive client-server application integration models, with a solution built on modern web services standards, said Salesforce.
Salesforce will also launch the Sforce Partner Portal Toolkit later this summer. This will provide a complete Java-based web application for creating partner portals on a company's website.
With this application, which includes all source code, companies will be able to securely manage and share leads, contacts, opportunities and documents with their partners.
The announcement was made as Siebel, the CRM market leader prepared for its user conference next week.
