It was quite a week. According to the Tweets from @benioff, “over 45,000 people gave us a week of their summer to attend Dreamforce 2011” – a truly amazing number and a truly amazing conference. Informatica customers and partners were also out in full force as the topic of data integration was front and center in most of the keynotes and breakout sessions. Informatica announced that it’s now running over 20 billion transactions per month via its multitenant cloud integration service and also introduced a mobile administration and monitoring application that is now available on the Apple App Store.
Our session on Hybrid IT – The Importance of Integration to Salesforce Success was run twice due to popular demand and it was a packed house each time. Special thanks to our great customer speakers from PSA Insurance and Financial Services, Topcon Positioning Systems and Qualcomm. You can check out the slides here and the video on Salesforce YouTube Channel soon.
