Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff At Dreamforce 2021: 5 Boldest Statements
Wade Tyler Millward
‘You look at the incredible market share that Salesforce has been able to achieve, it is because of our “trailblazers,”’ Salesforce CEO and co-founder Marc Benioff says at Dreamforce 2021 Tuesday.
Slack Part Of ‘Digital Headquarters’
Benioff views Slack as such a powerful force for how companies interact with customers and employees, that he and co-founder Parker Harris might have considered ditching a physical office if they founded the company today, Benioff said to the crowd.
“If Parker and I were starting Salesforce today, would we do it up at 1449 Montgomery Street, a few blocks away from here? Maybe. Or would we have just stayed in our homes and set up at digital headquarters instead? So a digital headquarters becomes an essential building block to build a trusted enterprise in today’s world.”
Just before the start of Dreamforce, Salesforce and Slack announced new integrations between the two companies and other divisions of Salesforce, including new video message and alert capabilities.
