I don't even know what we're talking about now.

Marketing Cloud is Salesforce's email marketing platform, formerly ExactTarget before being acquired.

My Joke was that I'd love to see Benioff put a "export my data and forget about me" button on Salesforce DMP (formly Krux)'s site.

> They offer other data services, but again even in orgs that have purchased them I haven’t seen them used that much.

And on that note, let's wrap this up.

I mean I’m not making any groundbreaking claims here. Simply stating that Salesforces core product is definitely not their marketing software or their data offerings such as data.com.

They make their money primarily off od subscriptions- not sure why that statement is so controversial.

And that last point you quoted was specifically made to illustrate that their data services aren’t even that popular. Companies that buy it often dont even use it.
