...Asia Threats
There are several challenges and threats that Salesforce is confronting due to external factors. Politically, the environment of catering to political factors is growing and due to uncertainties, it is affecting all the businesses especially the international business (Pratap, 2019). Salesforce and other software companies face political threats from countries which puts their companies (domestic business) over international services which makes it difficult and complex for the companies to enter into various countries because of these barriers (Pratap, 2019). It constricts the scope of the business.

...Asia
Introduction
Over the past 20 years, Starbucks has experienced both periods of strong growth, and periods of retraction, most notably during the Great Recession. The company’s investment strategies should have reflected its strategic priorities during this period, and an analysis of the company’s financials over this time should illustrate that. Starbucks’ growth since 1998 has mainly been in overseas markets, but the company has also branched out into other business lines, in an attempt to diversify its income streams. Today, Starbucks appears to have settled into more of a “cash cow” state, where the company is earning healthy returns from its businesses, and focused on growth mainly in some of the overseas markets where the coffee market is maybe a bit more nascent, in other words where there remains high growth potential going forward.
