Salesforce had its IPO in June 2004 and while a popular choice for investors looking to play the cloud services segment, it hadn’t seen a series of dramatic price increases until recently.

The coronavirus outbreak changed that, however. The sudden and sharp rise in remote work situations strongly underscored the need for enterprises to put operations onto the cloud for outside-of-the-office access. Savvy enough to take advantage of the resulting demand, Salesforce’s business grew commensurately, as did its prominence.

A rocket launch taking place in the desert.
