SalesForce.com is approaching a $3B year. They took a small part of that to buy Jigsaw for $143M. Why?
Steve Cadley is a SalesForce.com partner who helps businesses with sales performance via implementation of Miller Heiman process and SalesForce.com CRM system. We chatted about the SalesForce-Jigsaw acquisition. (About 10 minutes).
Arrington at TechCrunch doesn't like Jigsaw. I agree. The thought that someone who has my info would upload it to a database for points or dollars so that Jigsaw can get $1 for every person that wants to buy it leaves a bad taste. Hopefully, SalesForce won't make all of thier CRM contact info available through Jigsaw.
Whow owns you data when it sits on an ASP (or in an SAAS environment)?
