One of the biggest drivers of future growth for Salesforce is the company’s acquisition of Tableau Software for $15.3 billion last year. The all-stock deal was Salesforce’s largest transaction ever, part of its move to expand into the business intelligence arena.
According to the company, the Tableau deal will boost sales and propel the software maker more deeply into competition with segment giants Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Oracle (NYSE:ORCL), both of which offer business intelligence tools.
