Dear List

Forgive me for the slightly off topic query

Force.com and Salesforce have many (1009) apps at http://sites.force.com/appexchange/home for cloud computing for businesses, but very few forecasting and statistical simulation apps.

Example of Monte Carlo based app is here http://sites.force.com/appexchange/listingDetail?listingId=a0N300000016cT9EAI#

These are like iPhone apps except meant for business purposes (I am unaware if any university is offering salesforce.com integration though google apps and amazon related research seems to be on)

Force.com uses a language called Apex and you can see http://wiki.developerforce.com/index.php/App_Logic and http://wiki.developerforce.com/index.php/An_Introduction_to_Formulas Apex is similar to R in that is OOPs

My question is are there any R packages or research in Force.com or Salesforce.com Apps going on ( see SAS A new SAS data surveyor is available to access data from the Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software vendor Salesforce.com. at http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/whatsnew/62580/HTML/default/viewer.htm#datasurveyorwhatsnew902.htm)

I am just doing research on cloud computing and R and needed this info. Many thanks as always
