Really interesting to think about how the tech giants will fare after the crisis, and how that could potentially change the landscape!

Will Google buy Salesforce?

Will Google buy Salesforce?

Over the last month there has been some serious speculation that Google will attempt to pull off a behemoth of a deal and acquire Salesforce. Kicked off by the RBC Capital Markets prediction that Salesforce could be purchased for around $250B, and backed up with the Google’s Cloud services not so private announcement last year that they are aiming to become at least the #2 Cloud by 2023. What better way to jump start that than by acquiring Salesforce?

A number of online sites and pundits have pointed out that while this acquisition would certainly jump Google into the #2 spot, comparing Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services (AWS) to Salesforce, isn’t exactly apples to apples. AWS, the leading cloud services provider, enables developers and businesses to build their own services and applications, while Salesforce, is a CRM solution that provides solutions, based on their own proven infrastructure.

What that all means for the potential acquisition is that Google might have more to consider than just Salesforce’s cloud ranking. The synergies that could be realized by having Google and Salesforce under one roof could be very powerful, but at the same time, Google would need to be careful to preserve what makes Salesforce so powerful, namely, it’s passionate focus on building the world’s best CRM.

App of the Week – Enhance Dashboard – Chrome Extension for Salesforce (by Satrang)

One of the many benefits of Salesforce is the reporting metrics that come built in. The dashboard feature gives you at-a-glance overviews so you can track all sorts of essential business details. So wouldn’t it be great if you could have these powerful dashboards updating in real time? By default you can only update the dashboards daily, weekly or monthly, but that is where Enhance Dashboard comes in.

The Enhance Dashboard Salesforce Chrome extension provides “up to the second” real-time information from your Salesforce Dashboards and additional (up to 7) columns of Dashboard components.
