Salesforce set to acquire Slack Technologies - report

Thursday 26 November 2020 | 09:17 CET | News
Salesforce, based in San Francisco in the US, was started 21 years ago and is still run by co-founder Marc Benioff. It provides software via the cloud through a subscription and has a market value of about USD 230 billion. Benioff has gradually moved to expand the company's services, now providing everything from data analysis using AI to managing staff. That has put Salesforce in more direct competition with other business-software vendors such as Microsoft, among others.
