The Cloudforce 2010 is Coming to Town!
Yesterday, Salesforce.com, the enterprise cloud computing company, announced that Cloudforce 2010 will be held on June 22, 2010. The largest cloud computing event of the year will happen in the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, CA.
Cloudforce 2010 is for developers, customers, or people in the industry. The event is to welcome and discuss Cloud 2, the latest in cloud computing. Cloud 2 has been gaining momentum and stands to be the future of cloud computing. Chairman and CEO of Salesforce, Marc Benioff, and others will speak to explain and show the technology community the potential and abilities of Cloud 2.
Benioff’s presentation will start at 10 a.m. followed by a question and answer session. Cloudforce 2010 will include 18 expert-led breakout sessions. In addition, there will be over 35 Cloud leaders on the tradeshow floor. Several significant companies will be participating, including Dell, VMware, BMC, and other surprise guests. Attendees will be able to meet with the Salesforce product teams, get hands-on training, hear from experts, and learn strategies to be successful in the social collaboration world. They will also have the chance to examine many of Salesforce’s new CRM application and learn how to maximize their investments.
One of the highlights of this noteworthy event will be the introduction to Salesforce’s greatest application yet, Salesforce Chatter. Chatter is a social collaboration platform that is ideal for businesses. Users will have profiles and they will be able to view their fellow employees’ profiles. This will allow them to get to know their colleagues and share knowledge or tips. Employees will be able to stay updated on what their colleagues are doing, which will ultimately boost productivity and organization. Also, users will be able to find and share documents easily. Salesforce will release Chatter on June 22, 2010, to their 77,300 customers.
Experts will also be at the conference to show new offerings on the Force.com platform. Force.com allows developers to build apps 5 times faster at a lower cost, allows them to deploy apps easily to anyone, and lets them make apps mobile.
