Dreamforce 2013 Round Up

Dreamforce 2013 was everything I could of imagined and more. All of the hype leading up to this event paid off; the energy was incredible, the advice given by superior digital experts…invaluable, and the fun never seemed to stop. The highlights were many:

 

Launch of the DocuSign’s new integration for Salesforce1, Salesforce’s new CRM platform.

A groundbreaking update was announced at this year’s Dreamforce conference that enables users to collect information, signatures, and payments on the move.  With DocuSign’s new integration for Salesforce1, Salesforce’s new CRM platform, users can now sign anywhere from any mobile device.

 

Company CEO Keith Krach said: "DocuSign has long offered the most powerful and easiest-to-use eSignature app in the Salesforce ecosystem. With Salesforce1, DocuSign helps Salesforce users close business even more quickly in the cloud and in-person - extending the value of Salesforce to even more mobile customer scenarios."

 

Salesforce1 will improve API capabilities, add new mobile apps- one for customers and two for administrators, and give AppExchange partners and independent software vendors further access.

 

DocuSign, Evernote, Good Technology, and Xactly’s After-After-Party

DocuSign’s After-After party was nothing short of epic. After the Dreamforce gala was over, our customers, prospects, partners, and others headed across King Street to Lucky Strike, where we held our After-After party.  It was a fabulous opportunity for us to celebrate our collective success at Dreamforce and beyond, and a whole lot of fun too! Did you try our Signature drinks? 

 

Dreamforce Dev Zone

With sessions about learning how to use technologies such as Push Major and LMA to construct your test data and how the integration of Salesforce can closes deals more efficiently in the “Zen & the Art of Electronic Signing”, lots of digital ideas were exchanged in the DevZone!

 

Where in the world will you DocuSign?

During the After-After party we handed out awesome DocuSign jackets to lucky guests. If you received a jacket and took a picture in front of the “Where In The World Will You DocuSign” poster you were automatically entered for a chance to win a trip anywhere in the world! Additionally, if you tweeted or posted a picture of you in front of our “Where In The World Will You DocuSign” poster on one of DocuSign’s social media accounts than you will automatically be entered to win!

CloudEXPO Stories
As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility. As they do so, IT professionals are also embracing the reality of Serverless architectures, which are critical to developing and operating real-time applications and services. Serverless is particularly important as enterprises of all sizes develop and deploy Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives.
Signs of a shift in the usage of public clouds are everywhere. Previously, as organizations outgrew old IT methods, the natural answer was to try the public cloud approach; however, the public platform alone is not a complete solution. Complaints include unpredictable/escalating costs and mounting security concerns in the public cloud. Ultimately, public cloud adoption can ultimately mean a shift of IT pains instead of a resolution. That's why the move to hybrid, custom, and multi-cloud will become more and more prevalent. At the heart of this technology trend exists a custom solution to meet the needs and concerns of enterprise organizations, including compliance, security, and cost issues. The "new normal" of enterprise clients is a world of hybrid and multi-cloud solutions, and it is slowly changing the IT technology landscape. Better tools, better management, and easier adoption a...

While a hybrid cloud can ease that transition, designing and deploy that hybrid cloud still offers challenges for organizations concerned about lack of available cloud skillsets within their organization. Managed service providers offer a unique opportunity to fill those gaps and get organizations of all sizes on a hybrid cloud that meets their comfort level, while delivering enhanced benefits for cost, efficiency, agility, mobility, and elasticity.
