Salesforce Tableau Acquisition Highlights And My Views

Salesforce Tableau Acquisition Highlights And My Views

  • Salesforce’s bid for Tableau is $15.7 billion. Very huge!
  • This clearly shows now, “Data is new oil” in this coming time!
  • Such similar deal happened in past by Google which acquired a company Looker.
  • This deal is very heavy and Salesforce can get benefit of this deal only when maximum clouds of Salesforce start using Tableau and generate indirect revenue to Salesforce.
  • Big customers of Tableau are using Salesforce platform as well, so their shift to Salesforce can bring quick revenue to Salesforce.
  • By Salesforce and Tableau combination, customers wont need to use multiple platforms to manage their massive data on Salesforce, this is biggest plus point of this deal.
  • If will be able to take optimum advantage of this, it can be one game changer step for Salesforce and analytics industry.
  • Consolidation between Salesforce and Tableau wont be an easy task by the way. It will take many years, like Demandware acquisition deal.
  • Salesforce will also get huge revenue by the existing customers of Tableau like Nissan, Verizon, JPMorgan Chase and 80k+customers.
  • Existing Salesforce professionals can also get good benefit of this deal by learning Tableau platform and by waiting for the right opportunity in market. It will take time though!
