When data analytics and visualization software company Tableau was acquired by Salesforce in 2019, many people questioned Marc Benioff’s “software-free” philosophy. Business Intelligence is one of the most crucial components in any company’s success, and Tableau just happens to offer one of the most popular platforms around. As Bennioff says of the merger, “It’s truly the best of both worlds for our customers.”

Tableau enables users to customize dashboards that visualize data effectively, turning it into actionable insights. Like Microsoft Excel and other spreadsheet software, the platform generates worksheets featuring customizable graphs and charts, providing a clear visual picture of a company’s complex, yet covetous data. With the power of Salesforce now driving the platform’s further development, the potential for growth is boundless.

Before the acquisition, Tableau was already generating over $1 billion in annual revenue, and as the need for simple data analysis grows, Salesforce will find itself ahead of the curve.
