The first sentence of the fifth paragraph should read: Salesforce Maps will be released at Dreamforce 2019 (instead of: Salesforce Maps will be released at Dreamforce 2019 and available for purchase in February).
The corrected release reads:
SALESFORCE SELECTS ESRI AS KEY GEOSPATIAL PARTNER
Today at Dreamforce, Esri, the global leader in mapping and location intelligence, announced that Salesforce has selected Esri as the key geospatial partner for Salesforce Maps. Salesforce is integrating Esri’s ArcGIS Living Atlas, the foremost collection of global geographic data and basemaps.
