"Salesforce launched Analytics Cloud, powered by the Wave Platform, to reimagine the entire analytics process end-to-end, and empower business users to explore any data and uncover new insights from any device. And now, with Wave Analytics Apps, Salesforce will expand its Analytics Cloud portfolio to deliver analytics apps that are built to deliver intelligence, business context and instant action," the company stated.

Wave Analytics Apps will include: accelerator templates, historical analysis, and Wave Actions which means business users will now be able to act on it instantly within the app, whether it is creating a task, initiating a conversation or even changing a performance measure.

"Until today, analytics were not built for everyone," said Alex Dayon, president of products, Salesforce. "We are changing the game by combining intuitive analytics with business processes in Wave Analytics Apps, so every business user can not only see performance in real-time, but also take actions directly within the apps."

Sales Wave Analytics is currently in pilot with select customers and is expected to be generally available in English later this year. Additional language support is forthcoming. Sales Wave Analytics will be available via a per user, per month subscription model; pricing will be announced at the time of general availability.

The apps will be also available on Apple iOS for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, with additional device support forthcoming.
