Jim Cramer has always considered Salesforce.com to be the king of cloud. So while "Mad Money" is in San Francisco this week, he decided to check in with the CEO of the enterprise software company.

Salesforce last reported in November and totally blew away the numbers. However, since the beginning of the year, the stock has fallen 16 percent. Salesforce's chairman and CEO Marc Benioff is driving the company to be the fastest enterprise software company to reach $10 billion.

"The key to growth, and the key to hitting these extraordinary numbers—and no one has grown as fast as we have in enterprise software—is two things: one is extraordinary customer success…And two is incredible innovation," Benioff said.

"Lightning is the next generation of Salesforce's platform," Benioff said.

Salesforce is also on the verge of releasing its 50th major technology release. It has consistently had three releases per year in its 17 year history.
