Salesforce is buying Tableau for $15.7 billion in an all-stock deal. This is a huge deal for Salesforce as it continues to diversify beyond CRM software and into deeper layers of analytics. The company reportedly worked hard to — but ultimately missed out on — buying LinkedIn (which Microsoft picked up instead), and while there isn’t a whole lot in common between LinkedIn and Tableau, this deal will also help Salesforce extend its engagement (and data intelligence) for the customers that Salesforce already has — something that LinkedIn would have also helped it to do. This also looks like a move designed to help bulk up against Google’s move to buy Looker, announced last week.

Skype announced on Tuesday that its mobile screen sharing feature now allows both iOS and Android users to share their phone’s screen while on a call. The feature could be used for work-related purposes, as Microsoft has suggested in the past — like sharing a PowerPoint presentation. More practically, it could be used to give remote tech help. To access the option, Skype users will tap the newly added “…” (more) menu in the app. This is where you’ll find other recently launched features, as well, including call recording and subtitles. Also new in this release of Skype for mobile is a redesigned calling screen that now lets you dismiss the call controls with one tap. A second tap dismisses all the controls to make the video call itself the focus. And another tap brings all the controls back.
