See how Salesforce’s recent USD$15.7 bn acquisition of Tableau compares to other tech takeovers in recent history

White Box comment:

Despite what seemed to be an astronomical price for the data visualisation software tool, Salesforce’s acquisition of Tableau was in fact only relatively large compared to other recent takeovers in the tech space. Visualising numbers in a way which brings light to such observations enables us to compare these transactions in better context, giving an improved overall picture of the significance of these events.

This quick insight shows us where the richest families and single folk live (we use the volume of highest-earning families and non-families as a percentage of the total population for each suburb).

Why is this interesting? Well, the rich family suburbs are well known and expected but it’s the singletons that are interesting. They’re very concentrated and appear to be moving more and more into the Inner West, as house prices push even the richest folk further away from the CBD.

Well, if you want to base your Melbourne Cup pick on something other than the name, our quick analysis of the last 157 years by age, sex, colour and odds might help. So, if there’s a bay coloured stallion of 4-5 years old, then that might just be the best bet…. Note – our knowledge of horse racing is amateur at best, so any advice is purely for fun.
