Marc Benioff Career

Benioff served as an intern for Apple Computer when he was still a student at USC. He was hired by Oracle Corporation after graduating. The following 13 years of Marc’s work were devoted to moving up the ladder at Oracle. In 1999, Benioff established Salesforce after leaving Oracle. He was residing in a rented residence in San Francisco at that time. Marc was one of the first individuals to recognize the possibilities of SaaS or “Software as a Service”. “The End of Software” was one of Salesforce’s early marketing catchphrases. He coined the phrase “platform as a service” and many of his forecasts seem to have come true today. In fact, many firms are adopting cloud computing as the norm, and this trend is anticipated to last for several decades. At that time, Salesforce was at the forefront of the cloud computing craze.

 The company’s revenue for the 2015 fiscal year was $5.37 billion. At the time, a cloud computing company had accomplished a significant feat if its revenue surpassed $5 billion. Benioff has over the years made a number of noteworthy acquisitions. This not only increased his own net worth but also improved Salesforce’s performance. ExactTarget, an email marketing company, was one of Salesforce’s most significant acquisitions in 2013. Buddy Media was purchased by Salesforce for $689 million a year earlier. A few months later, Salesforce made another acquisition, paying $70 million to acquire the Canadian firm Golnstant.
