The Gartner Group estimates that 65% to 85% of expected CRM implementation benefits come from integration of information flows.
However most of Salesforce.com consulting partners deliver the remaining 20% to 30% benefits by simply configuring Salesforce.com and 3rd party tools mostly improving personal productivity.
Data management and data integration is expensive. That's why most Salesforce.com consulting shops to perform very little to no information integration in a typical implementation. That's why only 5% to 10% of Saleforce.com consulting shops have independent in-house data integration/validation teams which sign-off on implementation.
Most Salesforce.com consultants structure teams according to cost. The more inexperience loaded into the team, the higher the margins. This rarely brings strategic value.
