From 13th-16th October, Nagarro team (Vinod Kumar, Rohit Kumar) participated in the mother of all technical events, Dreamforce, in San Francisco. Dreamforce is an annual high energy event organized by Salesforce.com to showcase the upcoming products, technologies, offerings in technology space. With more than 1400 sessions to select from, the event was fun filled with numerous networking opportunities. Apart from the keynotes from Marc Benioff (CEO) & Parker Harris (Founder), we got a chance to listen to Hillary Clinton on philanthropy, Al Gore on climate change and Tony Robbins’ motivational talk.
Salesforce.com unveiled two important products that are going to change the way the user sees data, in a more intuitive and innovative manner – Salesforce Analytics & Lightning. Both the products have started causing ripples in the market with their unusual flair and functionality. In addition, Salesforce.com is shifting its focus more from providing the standard CRM solution to industry specific solutions.
The event witnessed close to 150,000 people from across the globe, 7 million online and around 400 cloud computing companies sharing over 1,000 easy-to-integrate solutions. We leveraged this opportunity to network with executives, product heads, and entrepreneurs from other firms to understand the upcoming trends and augment our in house capabilities in newer domains.
