Salesforce’s purchase of Tableau is great news for marketers

Exciting news in June 2019 as Salesforce announced its purchase of data visualisation company Tableau. It’s the cloud-based software company’s largest acquisition to date, coming in at a cool $15.7 billion in an all-stock deal.

So what’s Tableau?

Glad you asked! Tableau is a powerful data visualisation and analytics tool for companies. Tableau puts the data you need to make informed, business-boosting decisions at your fingertips. It’s all about data intelligence for smarter decisions.

Tableau can help make your CRM activities more effective by generating actionable insights and predictive analytics. At m—wise, we use Tableau to provide our clients with advanced intelligence about overall customer activity and campaign performance in order to enhance their loyalty programs.

What you need to know

By purchasing Tableau, Salesforce shows that it is continuing to expand beyond CRM software towards deeper levels of analytics. It’s a sure sign of exciting possibilities to come when the world’s #1 CRM joins forces with the #1 analytics platform.

In an interview with CNBC, Tableau CEO Adam Selipsky revealed that “there’s going to be a lot of attractiveness on the marketing and sales side.” Selipsky confirmed that Tableau will be able to share products, intellectual property and other assets with Salesforce.
