Re: Back office
@Scott: Indeed.  That "if they want to" is the big question.

I think that if it does happen, Oracle and SAP and those folks will find themselves quite disrupted.  While both are well respected (if not always beloved) cloud giants who have earned their place as such, Salesforce has the better "cloud" brand insofar as it has always been an SaaS company.

To wit, Salesforce is strictly a cloud company.  Oracle/SAP/etc. are tech companies that offer cloud services.  And I think CFOs/etc. will prefer to go with a specialist.

Re: Back office
That's an interesting point @Joe and I think the CFO is under a lot of pressure to not only to save money for the company but to increase efficiency. It will be interesting to see if Salesforce can reach into that part of the company. I think they can if they want to.

Back office
CFOs + back-office cloud have [relatively] long gone together.  There have been murmurings about the possibility of Salesforce.com reaching into the back-office market.  If that happens, look for the market to expand considerably.

Operations
I would think it would be the operations managers who would be reassuring the CFO and CEO that transfers to the cloud need not be disruptive to operations, not the CFO making that determination. Shouldn't the CFO be concerned with finances and expenses? If the cloud is cheaper, then the CFO would sign off on that aspect. Operations should then be saying whether the savings are true (that is, whether the move to the cloud will injure business in any way).
