Dreamforce 2015, as always, was more than an event – it was a destination. Mixed in with all the glamor and glitz were some important announcements, and some interesting hints at not just the direction that Salesforce is going, but the things that it should be doing to get there faster – and even differently.

I’m always looking for emerging trends at Dreamforce, the kinds of things that are hiding in plain sight. They might never amount to much but it’s more likely, given Dreamforce, that many of them will bloom. A case in point is the emergence of vertical market CRM. I think its time is here because application […]

What a difference a decade makes. Ten years ago, the booths on the Dreamforce show floor were little more than outposts for widget-makers but fast-forward to Dreamforce 2015 and one is struck by the number, variety, and size of the partner community. But that’s only part of the story, often out of sight is the […]

Events and trade shows. They’re expensive. You don’t get enough booth traffic. The folks that do come by are too junior. It sucks up days at a time. The air is convention-center nasty.
