Next week cloud channel leaders from around the globe will come together at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View for the 2nd Annual Cloud Channel Summit. Just like last year the DS TV Team will be onsite to capture the stories that make this industry segment so crucial to success in the cloud. Watch videos from the top names in channel management.
If you are involved with sales in some capacity, then you have probably have heard the name Jill Konrath. Jill is a veteran and has been leading sales strategies for years, coaching enterprise organizations from tech to consumer on how to optimize their sales processes. Given the political environment and Mr. Romney's controversial, "Binders of Women," Jill has taken the liberty to list the top women authors that write about sales.
One of the most common items enterprise software companies leave off the product launch checklist is a native mobile app. This is typically because they have invested so much development resources on the core web application that the mobile version will have to wait until future releases. But it doesn't have to. A well thought out go-to-market strategy involves mobile through and through, a mobile compatible site and application is the bare minimum, the main goal is to roll out a native app.
DreamSimplicity has partnered with the Cloud Channel Summit happening Monday November 5 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA. This is the second year DreamSimplicity is working closely with the event to capture video and tell the story of the cloud as it relates to channel management. Last year DS filmed over 35 videos with the industry's top thought leaders and executives. The videos are deployed on a mircosite dedicated to the event and can be viewed here.
Thanks to all of our new and continued fans, friends, and cloud buddies that came to see my band Strong Like Bull rock out at Dreamforce. If you made it to the show, I'm sure you will have fond memories of the day The Bull pounded the city while the space shuttle took its last fly-by. For those of you that did not make it, not to worry, we documented some of the best moments of the show for you here.
Who better to help tell the enterprise cloud story than Montclair Advisor's Kevin Dobbs. An industry analyst and expert, Kevin knows the space well, after all, his roots are tied deep from early days at Oracle.
This year Dreamforce will be a little different, more Rock n' Roll! I can't think of two things I love more colliding in one space. As the world's biggest cloud computing event expands to completely take over the city of San Francisco, they have added a music festival featuring 13 local bands including yours truly, Strong Like Bull. The show is on Friday Sept 21st at 10-11:45am, and is open to the public -- you can grab free passes here.
To continue the adventure in the hunt for the best Dreamforce 2012 tips, I headed over to Cloudwords to hear what they had to say about the upcoming event. Cloudwords is also a co-sponsor of the Masterpieces Party at the SF MOMA, happening the week of the event.
Dreamforce 2012 is quickly approaching and with over 70,000 people expected to attend - this year is going to be off the hook! DreamSimplicity has been attending the event since 2009, but the experts at Bluewolf are celebrating a decade of partnering with Salesforce.com for this massive event. I stopped by to visit them to learn some tips they have for folks attending the event for the first time.
It's that time of year again! Although it's been an incredibly sunny summer here in San Francisco, the clouds are rolling in for Salesforce.com's Dreamforce 2012 happening September 18th. If you are like me, you'll definitely be hitting up all the parties, and with this year's event expecting more than 70,000 people, you better be on the guest list or you may not get in. So to make it easy for you, I've assembled this list of parties, some public, some VIP, but don't wait to register. I look forward to seeing you there!
