Microsoft's other CRM products have been feeling the pinch of SalesForce.com's seemingly every growing market share. For a lot of companies this makes a good deal of sense. Would you rather buy an entire server and deal with the infrastructure and administration costs? Not every company has their own server room and IT department. Online services can make a lot of sense for applications like this.
