Salesforce recently posted this tantalizing brainteaser question "When do you think Salesforce will reach 1B transactions per day?"

Analyzing the recent numbers from trust.salesforce.com reveals some interesting patterns and trends:

  • Peaks tend to occur most often on a Tuesday
  • Weekend traffic drops to about 1/3rd of weekday activity
  • The average growth between peaks is 0.52% per week
Extrapolating these numbers out reveals that Tuesday, December 18th, 2012 is the highest probability date to hit 1B transactions. But that date is pretty close to the holidays, so it's a tough call.

What is your prediction?
