Marc Benioff quotes

We picked up some great companies last year because the acquisition window was really open. But the reality is, because the market is roaring, the acquisition window is really narrowed, and I just don't see any acquisitions in the short-term. It's very exciting, so we just released our spring release Salesforce, so all of our customers around the world have Einstein now built into their Salesforce implementations. Now what we're doing is we're going to augment that. This is two of the most important companies in technology coming together for the benefit of their customers.feedback

We just reported an unbelievable year. But our results can be tempered by the foreign exchange environments. So we are appropriately conservative when we give you those numbers.feedback

We have doubled the company in the last three years, we have tripled the cash flow and consistently increased the margin. Now we are going to do that again over the next three years.feedback

You can expect us to look at anything that's exciting out there, but it's really just part of our innovation and growth focus. We have tremendous organic growth internally and then we look every now and then to complement it with some exciting opportunities.feedback

I think a lot of people don't understand how deep AI already is in so many things. Inside our company we have a new version of our Salesforce Einstein product, which gives us guidance. And so it tells us we're either going to make the quarter or not make the quarter ahead of time. That's amazing.feedback

Technology's always taken jobs out of the system, and what you hope is that technology's going to put those jobs back in, too. That's what we call productivity.feedback

What you hope is that the technology doesn't outpace the system so that it starts to strip the jobs away, and that's the fear of artificial intelligence.feedback

I'm not a Republican. And I'm not a Democrat either. You know that I view myself just as an American. And I'm looking forward to a great future.feedback

I certainly respect the results and the will of the American people … I respect democracy. And I want to move forward with an open heart and an open mind.feedback

We expect to deliver our first $10 billion year during our fiscal year 2018.feedback

That was an uncomfortable meeting that I had at Dreamforce. I had a really incredible conference then I walked into a room with 200 shareholders and they were like, Look, you need to listen more closely to us.' And I agreed.feedback

I think it's a great company, I think it's a great CEO. I think it has a huge vision and has a unique position in the world. As evidenced by this election, I think it's more important than ever. Without Twitter, I don't think you would have President-elect Trump.feedback

In that case, one of my key stakeholders – my shareholders – made it very clear that they wanted me to exit that dream or vision or idea. I did. Because I [had] no choice. If anything, I have to be able to listen, and if I wasn't listening then I wouldn't really be the leader that I'm trying to be.feedback

A lot of people have got involved in that, and that's very important to a lot of world leaders, and a lot of economic leaders, because they have been educated and they can see that we need to shift. And, Silicon Valley is very, very sensitive and focused on inclusion and diversity.feedback

We attract people from all over the world – the best in the world – and right now when they graduate our universities, they're forced out of the country.feedback

I was just very kind of surprised by this. It's not something I would do. Things like that kept happening.feedback

We were closer than we realized – maybe a $105 cash plus $105 stock would have done it! But we were definitely over our skis!!!!feedback

Our stockholders heard that we were involved in a process and they made it very clear that they did not want us to buy that company. So, very specifically, we had to walk away.feedback

Only the very, very best assets are the ones that we are going to acquire. We have a very disciplined, refined, controlled process and we've made some very good decisions over the last several years in acquisitions.feedback

In this case we've walked away. It wasn't the right fit for us.feedback

He's the CEO of that company it's his job to make that a great company but it my job to make SalesForce a great company.feedback

I also read your emails. And as I digest all of that information, this is actually the No. 1 thing that has been on my mind. In some cases we have been unusually surprised and we have had to do a reset.feedback

Well, what about this one deal right here!feedback

We believe innovation happens not just in Salesforce, but in other companies.feedback

I don't believe in running the company like a lone wolf.feedback

I mean the kind of things that I have been reading in the emails are so extreme I am like, Jesus, do they really think that we would do a deal at that level?feedback

I'm cool with Satya for sure, but some of his executives however, I am not cool with because they have made some very aggressive statements about what they are going to be doing with this LinkedIn data ? It's amazing what they have said. And they are doing things that are absolutely anti-competitive, and that's what I wrote on Twitter.feedback

We have to go deep on everything. We have to understand what is possible for our shareholders and what isn't. But in the scheme of things, if you look back at my track record as a CEO, I think you'll find that while I look at a lot of things, I actually pass on most.feedback

You can feel the momentum here... After meeting with all these amazing customers yesterday, it re-validated I already knew: Our core is so very, very strong.feedback

That's why we're selling our products to our customers – so they will have more data to mine. ...That's really mission critical.feedback

It's amazing what is now possible, whether it's machine learning, deep learning, machine intelligence that we're able to do today that we weren't able to do just a couple of years ago. Our customers are going to get that for the first time in October.feedback

We did see a bit of softness in the United States at the very end of the second quarter.feedback

It has to do with our own execution in the United States in the quarter in the end. [But] I have a lot of confidence in the second half.feedback

Not only did we have Brexit, but we have this precipitous fall of the great British pound, which is how we roll up our European currencies. That dramatically affected our revenue in the quarter. In fact, we've lost $150 million in revenue for the year through this foreign exchange change. Even through that though, we are raising our revenue guidance for the year.feedback

This was a very competitive deal. This was very hard.feedback

With Demandware, Salesforce will be well positioned to deliver the future of commerce as part of our Customer Success Platform and create yet another billion dollar cloud.feedback

What I see is an AI first world. And for every customer ... to be able to get a whole another generation of productivity out of artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning.feedback

One of the reasons we're doing so well is Oracle and SAP are doing so poorly in the cloud.feedback
