“That’s great”! You must be thinking... “what is Data.com?”
Data.com is the most complete source of accurate business data from Salesforce.com. Our vision for Data.com is to revolutionize the way companies consume, manage and contribute their business data to bring together the data and insights you need to grow in a world that includes a myriad of data sources.
Today, Data.com has alliances to combine the best and fastest growing contact data from Jigsaw (naturally!) with rich company information from Dun & Bradstreet. Data.com unifies it all in one place and makes it easily accessible. D&B represents our first marquee partnership, kicking off the first of many amazing developments to come in our data evolution.
So.. what does this mean for Jigsaw?
Jigsaw is now “Data.com contacts by Jigsaw” because Jigsaw is what powers Data.com’s contacts. And while at first this might seem like just a name change it is much more than that. Data.com is salesforce.com’s big vision for the future of business data and you--the Jigsaw, now Data.com contacts community--is a huge part of that. Your participation in our model is fundamentally changing the way companies and individuals access and consume data--the lifeblood of all business. Our site and our members have always been industry disruptors --and now as part of Data.com we’re going to do it even more!
You’ll still continue to access contacts and your Jigsaw account at www.jigsaw.com. Jigsaw will still be free to use (just keep contributing and updating those contacts) and all of your points, membership status etc will continue to carry over. What you can expect is some great new features and additions that will come in the future, and we’ll keep you posted on those when they are ready. Plus, eventually you’ll have access to D&B company data right within Jigsaw.com--giving you access to the gold-standard in account information that you can use to better target and penetrate accounts.
