A number of people have emailed me in the last couple of days asking me about my cryptic tweets such as "Chatter running in Gmail". So here's the scoop. We just released a cross-cloud broker solution called CloudWorks that unleashes information from SaaS silos. It's received some good press from ZDNet, Internet.com and ReadWriteWeb so far and we are really excited about it.

Appirio CloudWorks enables enterprises to unleash information from SaaS silos and deliver it through the tools business people use to work. CloudWorks is cloud broker technology, delivered as a service, that unifies identity, security, data, context, and business object definitions across leading cloud applications such as Salesforce, Google Apps, Workday and their ecosystems. This makes cross-cloud solutions possible and makes it significantly easier to manage data, users and processes across SaaS applications.

We just released a video demo of SalesWorks, our Salesforce.com extension. The video shows SalesWorks running in Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Start Page and on an iPad.
