Dreamforce, The Future of GIS, Non-Digital Travel and capioIT turns Five
As you may have guessed, September marks the 5th birthday of capioIT. To put this in practical terms, we have outlasted the past four Australian Prime Ministers. Of course we are very proud of this milestone. Anyone in small business knows how difficult it is, and statistics show that the majority doesn’t get to blow five candles out. We want to display our sincere gratitude to everyone that has supported capioIT over the past five years. We cannot wait for the next five.
The 2015 Salesforce customer event Dreamforce was as big and bold as ever, with 170,000 attendees, 1,600 sessions and 400 partners. Despite some odd moments, especially around the surprisingly flat and badly scripted keynotes the energy and innovation was clear.
The strongest takeaway for me was the depth of engagement that Salesforce has created with Microsoft. Satya Nadella had a well received keynote where he showed Microsoft to be a platform agnostic software vendor. Alongside Salesforce CEO and founder, Mark Benioff, the depth to which Salesforce is embedded in Microsoft O365, particularly Outlook was made particularly clear. This is a very significant step forward for both vendors, and their customers.
