Salesforce (report of $140 million from State Farm Insurance) and Concur $1.4 billion from GSA

As of my writing this blog, 8/13/2012, this news is only a rumor so I want to preface my post, but reported scored a $140 million dollar deal from State Farm Insurance:

What isn’t rumor is that Concur was awarded a $1.4 billion dollar contract from the General Service Administration (GSA) to provide¬†online travel booking, authorization and voucher-processing services for the next 15 years.
