SAN FRANCISCO, CA: Salesforce has unveiled the next wave of mobile innovation for the Salesforce Analytics Cloud to empower every business user with instant insights, anywhere.

Users can now import and analyze new data sources, build entirely new dashboards and share insights in just seconds from their phone.  Additionally, a free playground version of the Analytics Cloud is available for desktop and mobile devices—now anyone can experience the power of the Analytics Cloud using their own imported data or a variety of preloaded data sets.
