The first day at Dreamforce 2022 started with the live keynote by Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff. In his statement, he welcomed all the communities of developers, admins, IT, and trailheads for the event. Following it, the magic of Dreamforce has begun. On the first day, the event covered a lot of essential keynotes, sessions, studio shows and much more. 

It is crazy that Dreamforce has over 2300 sessions and so many other activities that they planned for the participants, including activities on the Dreampark. 

Quick Highlights of Day 1 at Dreamforce 2022

#1 Live and On-demand content is the Future: The way how live and on-demand content takes place in all our lives today is entirely amazing. Apps like Netflix and Amazon Prime have wholly changed how content is consumed. We are now in the era of live and on-demand streaming, where we can see anything and everything we want. 

Salesforce+ brings the authentic experience to its B2B consumers, where they can consume conferences, sessions, and all worthy B2B events. This digital-first experience comes with binge-worthy series and episodes wholly tailored according to the interest and role of the B2B viewer. Salesforce+ has started with hundreds of on-demand sessions, four channels and a dozen live sessions. 

#2 Salesforce is inviting every company across the globe to be a “Trusted Enterprise”: In his start of the speech at Dreamforce Day1, CEO Marc Benioff clearly stated that somewhere we all are facing the trust crisis, customers somehow developed mistrust towards the companies that serve them. 

So to overcome this, Salesforce has come up with a playbook titled “The Trusted Enterprise”. This playbook is designed explicitly for businesses to earn and win the trust of their customers, employees, partners and communities. This playbook highlighted the areas including- Trust, Sustainability, Customer-first, Health & Safety and Digital headquarters. 

#3 Slack is the star of the show in Dreamforce 2022: In Dreamforce 2022, Salesforce considered Slack the new digital headquarters. Companies embracing the remote environment can create a more productive and inclusive workspace with Slack. 

The CEO of Slack Technologies, Stewart Butterfield, took a session on Day1 at DF22, unveiling the new product innovation and spotlighting customers like Walmart, IBM, and McKinsey using Slack to empower their workplace.

5 Tips to Flourish Your Dreamforce ’19 Experience

The biggest B2B Cloud Conference in the world ‘Dreamforce’ is less than two months away and Trailblazers from around the world are all set to be a part of this amazing carnival. The entire Ohana is counting down the days and bracing themselves for four days of innovation, inspiration, giving back & learning. With 2700+ sessions, super-sessions and major keynotes – Dreamforce ’19 is all set to take us from now to next. 

Dreamforce, which is scheduled to take place from 19th to 22nd November 2019 in San Francisco is going to be even bigger this time. As the event is quickly approaching and it’s already been sold out, you can expect thousands of attendees joining, the importance of a well-planned schedule is highly recommended. As Dreamforce is not at all a kind of event where you can jump in with an open agenda, one must ensure to have a must-do list of things before taking flight for San Francisco. As a regular Dreamforce attendee, we can share some of the things which can help you flourish your Dreamforce’19 experience. 

Plan your sessions in advance

Dreamforce will spread across an enormous area in downtown San Francisco. With the Moscone Center as the central hub, the event extends to various other places such as Marriott Marquis, InterContinental, the Palace Hotel, Hilton Union Square, the Park Central, and the Westin St. Francisco. With 2700+ sessions & a large spread area, joining all your favorite sessions could be difficult at times. Adding to this, with thousands of other people, you can always expect long queues, delays, and often housefull boards.  

Planning out your favorite sessions in advance and registering them will certainly help you get past all the hassles & save time. Attending consecutive sessions will never help. Entry for session halls starts 10 mins before, and you can be there 15mins prior. Doing a little research on the session topic and the speaker will certainly help you understand things better. Dreamforce is not at all about attending sessions. Always keep some time for customer success expo, networking, and dreamfest. 

Map out Keynotes

Keynotes are one of the biggest inspirations during Dreamforce. Every year some of the biggest industry leaders share their experiences and change the way we think. Dreamforce ’19 Keynotes lineup is not yet finalized as we still have a lot of time left, but we can definitely expect some top industry leaders taking the center stage sharing their stories and inspiring thousands in order to transform they think, work & lead. Before the Dreamforce, you must map out the keynotes you don’t want to miss and plan your calendar. You should reach 30mins prior to get a seat. If in case you missed out on a seat, you can watch it on the live screens inside the Dreamforce plaza. Keynotes will be available in Salesforce Live and YouTube also. 

Customer Success Expo

Every year Dreamforce witness some of the most innovative products. Salesforce partners launch or showcase their groundbreaking solutions at the Customer Success Expo. You can check the official Dreamforce website and take note of the exhibiting companies and their products. A decent amount of research on the partner companies and their solutions will help you understand the solution and how it can help your business. You can always get product-related updates from the official social media channels. It is always good to book a slot before the event for a personalized demo or related discussion. At times, it is very difficult to understand a product in detail and it’s value additions while visiting a booth because of the rush. It is recommended to note the booth numbers of your preferred products for easy access. 

Dreamfest

Dreamforce is half-done without party & fun. Though the entire event is a weeklong celebration with sponsor parties and happy hours all over the city, you can’t leave San Francisco without Dreamfest. Dreamfest featured most of the popular bands and performers, all benefiting UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals. Past bands have included Metallica, U2, Bruno Mars, and Alicia Keys. Salesforce hasn’t revealed who they have in store for this year’s Dreamfest, but you can expect an experience of a lifetime to remember. You can take some time off from your regular sessions, keynotes, and customer success expo to enjoy a relaxed time with your fellow trailblazers.

The DataConnectiva Show

As a Salesforce Partner, CEPTES will be a part of Dreamforce’19 as well. Last year Dreamforce was very special for us, as we launched our flagship product DataArchiva at the customer success expo. As the ONLY Native Data Archiving Solution for Salesforce, DataArchiva has positioned itself as a game-changer for Salesforce enterprise customers. This year Dreamforce, we are all set to change the way you have been using Salesforce for years. Our new solution DataConnectiva will not only help you manage your Salesforce data storage but also enable you to choose your preferred external Cloud/On-premise storage system to keep archived data. With DataConnectiva in place, you can save high storage costs, improve CRM performance and enhance governance. You can’t leave Dreamforce’19 without checking out DataConnectiva. You can schedule a meeting with our team by clicking here.

Dreamforce is going to be a once in a lifetime experience. A pre-plan can really help you manage your schedule and ensure not missing out on any important thing. Don’t get behind. Start your Dreamforce’19 plan and don’t forget to meet us and say hello. See you in San Francisco.

Dreamforce Day 2: Star performances – Metallica at Dreamfest & DataArchiva at Customer Success Expo

With Day 2 of Dreamforce ’18 coming to a close, we witnessed a lot of actions and some awesome moments. From famous Philanthropig ‘Lilou’ visiting the Dreamforest to a celebration of Trailblazers, inspiring keynotes to Dreamforce Fortune executive summit, it was an action-packed day.

The day started with the message that customers can now purchase Google Marketing Platform products like Analytics 360, Optimize 360, Google Tag Manager 360 directly from Salesforce in the US & Canada. This will simplify the buying experiences for customers who are looking to enhance their marketing effectiveness with an integrated mix of industry-leading solutions including Salesforce Marketing Cloud, Sales Cloud, Service Cloud and Google Analytics 360.

Few of the most cherished moments during the day were when Lilou, world’s first airport therapy pig was the center of attraction and brought many selfie moments, and when Co-CEO Marc Benioff said “This is a celebration of you, our Trailblazers, of everything you are doing. It’s an incredible moment”, the entire hall was echoed with loud cheers.

But the two highlights of Day 2 were the Metallica live performance at Dreamfest and DataArchiva live demo at booth #1942 in the Customer Success Expo. In their grand return to Dreamforce, Metallica performed the way they do at dreamfest. As one of the world’s most celebrated rock bands, Metallica has more than 120 accolades including 9 Grammys and Polar Music Prize. They have a whopping 60 million followers across Facebook, Instagram, Spotify, Twitter, and YouTube. The concert was for UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital.

On the other hand at booth #1942 in the Customer Success Expo, It was another incredible day for DataArchiva. Just like day one, trailblazers around the world showed immense interest and all the demo sessions were full. As archiving business data & getting meaningful insights from it is need of the time, companies from various industries are highly interested in DataArchiva to archive their Salesforce data. Have you visited booth #1942 yet to see a live demo? Join us on Day 3, if you want to save up to 80% of your data storage cost.

CEPTES @ Dreamforce 2018: The Stage is All Set for a DataArchiva Show

We are less than a month away from the ginormous B2B Cloud Conference in the world “Dreamforce“. As the four-day event is swiftly approaching, we can’t reserve our excitement. Dreamforce, which will be held from Sept. 25-28, is all set to bring together the biggest industry leaders, speakers, partners, vendors, 2700+ breakout sessions and more than 200,000 trailblazers across the globe to the four blocks surrounding the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

Like every year, CEPTES will be there during the four-day long event full of innovation, inspiration, learning, and giving back. However, Dreamforce ’18 is going to be extremely special for us, as we are going to present our flagship product “DataArchiva” in front of an arena full of Salesforce experts. Though DataArchiva has already achieved a great deal of success and positioned it as one of the top Salesforce native applications just within a few months of its AppExchange release, yet showcasing it during the biggest Salesforce event, is altogether a different feeling.  

While preparing for the Dreamforce ’18, CEPTES was on a mission to develop a product which can actually address the customer pain points while adding real business values. As today’s business is completely driven by data and data insights offer a huge competitive advantage, it has become a must for enterprises to keep a record of their business data for future use as well as to ensure compliance. However, Salesforce customers were facing tough challenges in order to keep a record of their past data as Salesforce storage cost comes at a huge price. This is where the need for big data raised in order to save enormous storage cost.

The arrival of DataArchiva with the power of BigObject

As the structured big datasets spanning various applications is increasing, the value of big data system has grown in recent years. This is where BigObject works as a nearline repository which addresses cost considerations while offering an analytical solution. Utilizing the power of BigObject and Salesforce Platform, CEPTES has developed “DataArchiva”, which is the only Salesforce native data archiving solution. The application comes with rich features and robust functionalities, that offers a seamless data archiving solution with a storage cost reduction up to 80%.

Listed in a Gartner Report for top Structured Data Archiving Solutions is surely a big deal, and DataArchiva achieved this within a few months of its release. After winning the first customer in a few weeks, there is no looking back for DataArchiva since then.
