Miss the fun or haven’t had a chance to watch the sessions online yet? Here’s a quick recap of our favorite highlights, news and announcements from #DF14 – all features of Salesforce’s new Customer Success Platform.
Dreamforce also released some updates in the social space and social studio. The Marketing Cloud is continually working on bringing Radian6, Buddy Media and social.com together in one platform: Social Studio.
At Dreamforce, I planned to attend and soak up all of the breakout sessions that I could around Salesforce Marketing Cloud. Unfortunately, with clients to meet, and a #WalkABlock loft to run, I didn’t get to make it to every session I wanted. I was able to watch most of keynotes and share my top key findings I learned at the conference.
If you’ve been to Dreamforce before, you know the feeling: never-ending lines for coffee, a bazillion people waiting to get into keynotes and an overwhelming amount of information coming at you from all angles. The good news: this year Sundog has you covered at Basecamp where you can put your feet up, relax and recharge with coffee, cocktails and more.
Whether you are attending Dreamforce or not, social media allows us to connect with others at the event. Watch keynotes, product announcements and more from your computer or connect with those around you. I’ll share you some of the top ways you can stay connected with Dreamforce this year. I’ll also give you an inside look at how we plan to manage all of the social conversations and engage as a brand.
