It’s over, Dreamforce that is, and I have gotten some needed sleep on the flight back to Boston. As I contemplate Dreamforce 2012 and its meaning I have three observations. First, it was what I expected it to be. If you refer back to my post just before the show opened my expectations were more […]

I had a stunning couple of days at the Dreamforce event. Gorgeous weather, amazing San Francisco sights, lovely company as I wrote here. And picked up all kinds of interesting angles from the event: David Cush, CEO of Virgin America, reached out to a member of his IT staff in the audience while he fumbled […]

Dreamforce Represents The Mecca For The “Art Of The Possible” In The Enterprise Whether Salesforce.com’s flagship conference at Moscone Center was the most attended conference (~48,000) or the most registered for event (~90,000), matters not. When examined in context of the magnitude of what was accomplished, the impact of this 10th annual event transcends attendance […]

Tweet Dreamforce is a big event. Crazy big. Nearly 90,000 people came to San Francisco this week for the annual celebration of all things salesforce.com. The city shut down Howard Street between the north and south sides of the Moscone Center so that the company could pack in even more people. Salesforce did a slick […]

I attended Dreamforce 2012, Salesforce.com’s 10th annual user conference, in San Francisco, and came away feeling very positive about the company, product and the possible solutions that can get conceptualized.
