Salesforce announced Wave, the Salesforce Analytics Cloud.

Wave is the first cloud analytics platform designed for every business user, making it easier than ever for anyone to explore data, uncover new insights and take action instantly from any device. Companies can now quickly deploy sales, service and marketing analytics, or build custom mobile analytics apps, using any data source—empowering everyone to make smarter decisions from anywhere. At Dreamforce 2014, the largest software event ever, more than 30 Wave ecosystem partners, including Accenture, Deloitte Digital and Informatica had showcased how companies can extend analytics for any business need.  The world’s most data-driven companies, including Equinix, GE Capital and TriCore Reference Laboratories trust the scale and speed of Wave to know their customers in a whole new way.
