Salesforce.com Agreement to Acquire Jigsaw

Jessica Thornsby

Jigsaw will remain open, but Salesforce.com customers will get extra features.

Salesforce.com have announced they have entered into a definitive
agreement to acquire Jigsaw.

Jigsaw is a downloadable database of contact and company
information, delivered in the cloud. Jigsaw also offers tools for
researching companies and user generated company research wiki
pages.

In the press release, Salesforce.com pledge that Jigsaw will
remain open to all CRM systems, but that their customers will
benefit from an integrated Jigsaw experience, including an
automated process for data cleansing. Furthermore, when Salesforce
Chatter becomes generally available, Salesforce.com predict that
users will receive real-time feeds when Jigsaw data changes or
requires cleansing.

The deal is expected to close in Q2FY11.
