CEO Marc Benioff said, " continues to be the fastest growing top 10 software company with 38% year-over-year growth in revenue, and more than 30% year-over-year growth in deferred revenue and operating cash flow in the second quarter." On the company’s Q2 earnings conference call, Benioff noted that Europe was performing "beyond expectations," and that the company was just now beginning to realize the enormous potential of international opportunities.

Summit Research analyst Srini Nandury said the firm's channel checks indicate that Tableau's (DATA) software competition will intensify from Salesforce (CRM), Qlik (QLIK) and PowerBI. The analyst thinks Tableau's string of large "beat and raise" quarters will come to an end since most of the "low-hanging fruit" seems to have been picked and the company will need to work harder to acquire new customers. Nandury keeps a Hold rating on Tableau and cut the firm's price target on the stock to $75 from $80.
