Salesforce Co-CEO Marc Benioff At Dreamforce 2022: We’re Larger Than SAP
Wade Tyler Millward
SAP “had a great quarter this quarter, $7.5 billion. We had a larger quarter – $7.7 billion,” Salesforce co-CEO Marc Benioff said during Dreamforce 2022.
The Slack Acquisition
It’s a new day for work. And we need incredible new products and incredible new technology to make all this happen. We heard about Trailhead – that’s an incredible new product. We are bringing to all of our companies to train all of our associates and our colleagues on this technology and all these core values.
But there’s one more thing. While we were all away over the last two years, we bought another amazing company. Another amazing company that has so much in common with Salesforce and was actually right next door. We looked out our window every day and there they were. We saw them in our park. We went out to coffee with them. We went out to lunch with them.
They said, ‘Wow, this is an amazing, new, incredible product – Slack.’
And we love Slack. And it became an imperative for us to build these incredible trusted relationships to empower efficiency. And as Bret [Taylor, Salesforce co-CEO] said, we need new ways to work. We need new ways to work because we’re in the office but we’re also at home. We’re on the road. We’re in many places.
