Salesforce.com Inc. is targeting the biggest of customers to get big itself.
The company, once known for selling business productivity software to small- and medium-sized clients, is getting more traction with large companies while drawing closer to an annual sales goal of $10 billion. Salesforce said it landed the most large deals ever in a three-month period during the fiscal first quarter, including one worth at least $100 million. The company also Wednesday forecast revenue in the current quarter that topped analysts’ estimates, sending shares up as much as 6.6 percent in extended trading.
