The best sales operations tool and the best data visualization tool are now owned by one company...
... and they plan to open a second headquarters in Seattle. (Where Tableau was founded, and the majority of their staff reside.)
Technologically, this is huge.
Sociologically, this is huge for Seattle's business dynamics.
Tableau used to be one of my clients for my marketing consultancy, and I worked with them for years. Outstanding organization. Brilliant product. Great people. They are going to hoover up talent from Seattle stalwarts like Amazon, who treat people like disposable assets.
Both Tableau and Salesforce are great employers. Amazon isn't. (For devs.)
This is going to resonate in enormous ways, across dozens of industries, and markets.
