Another day, another Salesforce acquisition. Just days after closing the hefty $15.7 billion Tableau deal, the company opened its wallet again, this time announcing it has bought field service software company ClickSoftware for a tidy $1.35 billion.

This one could help beef up the company’s field service offering, which falls under the Service Cloud umbrella.

Adobe could be the next $10 billion software company
"Even while it was announcing its revenue, rival Salesforce was meeting with Marketing Cloud customers in Chicago at the Salesforce Connections conference, a move that presented an interesting juxtaposition between the two competitors. Both have a similar approach to the marketing side, while Salesforce concentrates on the customer including CRM and service components. Adobe differentiates itself with content, which shows up on the balance sheet as the majority of its revenue."

Twitter’s stock plunges as user growth stalls
"That's not going to happen, and investors are cluing in. Twitter had 328 million average monthly active users, or MAU, in the three months ending in June, which is unchanged from the previous quarter. The company's shares were down more than 10 percent this morning on the news.

The poor showing comes despite Twitter's role in the daily news cycle being more prominent than ever, since the platform often serves as President Donald Trump's favored medium of expression."

SAP Q4 FY2016 hits top of cloud range but is an overall miss. Company ups guidance for 2020 - by @dahowlett
"The markets will likely whine at the revenue miss but I don’t think we should read too much into this. The ancillary information suggests that SAP is achieving better order value this year compared to last year even though overall deal flow fell. Order volume for on-premises deals fell about 5.5% but the share of deals above €5 million rose from 20% to 34% year over year. What is not so clear is the general impact of currency volatility and an assessment of conditions in a post-Brexit and under a Trump presidency."

Cisco’s Unified Computing System — its main offering for data centers — is a product that combines computing, storage and networking, but the company doesn’t own any storage assets. Instead it offers storage products from EMC, NetApp, Hitachi and IBM as an option in UCS products. “

Infor boasts 300% growth in cloud bookings, hires new CFO - by @derek_dupreez
"What is different about Uber fighting City Hall versus WalMart or an energy company, is that Uber has user experience on their side. This is where De Blasio fatally erred in taking on Uber. He attempted to use worn our arguments about safety and employee rights to define Uber as a threat to the public welfare when anyone who has ridden in a yellow cab – anywhere – will tell you it is quite the opposite. The data didn’t back up De Blasio’s claim, on the surface or at that level that we just intuitively know."
