Day 2 was much, much better than Day 1. It was a day for apps – not causes. Especially vertical apps. Readers know I have been screaming for those. I watched three sessions on Manufacturing, Auto and Energy; Financial Services…

I wrote last week I am excited about Salesforce’s verticals and that I planned to watch many of the industry sessions scheduled at Dreamforce today. However, last year’s CEO Marc Benioff’s keynote did a really nice job showcasing customer case…

Show season changes the CRM market, it always does. One day you’re in the vanilla application software space and a week later you understand the need to incorporate social media, or analytics or machine learning or you see a need for enhanced integration and development through platform services.
