Salesforce.com, the enterprise cloud computing company, has completed its acquisition of Dimdim. Founded in 2007 and backed by Nexus Venture Partners, India’s leading venture fund, Dimdim has created critical real-time communication technologies such as presence, messaging and screen sharing.
“From our start, Dimdim has focused on enabling real-time communication in the cloud, with no software. Salesforce.com gives us the opportunity to apply our expertise and align our vision of real-time, social enterprise software in the cloud – at a scale that wouldn’t have been otherwise possible,” said DD Ganguly, CEO, Dimdim. “We really enjoyed working with Nexus in building this company.”
“We are very proud of what the Dimdim team has achieved in a very short time,” said Suvir Sujan, Co-founder, Nexus Venture Partners. “This acquisition is also testament to the potential of Indian technology product companies’ ability to have a global impact. The acquisition is an important milestone for the Indian technology industry, which is witnessing a shift from services to products.”
