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. With customers from varied industries, DataArchiva has achieved a five-star AppExchange rating with a handful of positive customer reviews. A US Government Cloud Ready label assured the highest data security and GDPR support functionalities made DataArchiva one of the most talked technological innovations in the past few years.

Targeting fundamental archival components (compliance, historical, analytics), DataArchiva offers a key to data governance, analytics, and retention. Few of the most valuable highlights of the application are; Policy Driven Governance and Retention, API Enablement, Attachment/File Support, Salesforce Standard Field History & Audit Trail Support, Instant Accessibility & Restore, View of Archived Data using Standard UI layout (Classic and Lightning) and much more. Talking about the capabilities, DataArchiva offers reduced capital and operational expenditures, compliance and governance, lower risk of regulatory violation, templatized archiving as per industry, smart metadata reconciliation, scheduled archiving, easy search & restore, performance enhancement, prediction & analytics on archived data, and low to zero maintenance cost.

DataArchiva @Dreamforce ’18

Exhibiting at booth #1942 in the Moscone Center, DataArchiva is all set to steal the show. By 2020, the volume of archivable data will be tripled & enterprises have to spend a huge amount of money to store their data. For Salesforce customers, DataArchiva is the ideal solution which can periodically archive their infrequently used data by reducing significant storage cost. In the ongoing life cycle of the data-driven business, it is no longer optional to keep a track of your data. Don’t wait for a lost opportunity or a regulatory violation. Contact us today.

Dreamforce 2018: Key Things to Note

The ginormous B2B Cloud Conference in the world and the biggest carnival for all the Trailblazers around the globe “Dreamforce” is just a month away. The entire Salesforce Ohana is excited and can’t wait for the event to start. Most of us have already booked our tickets and all set to experience the best four days of the year. Four days of innovation, inspiration, giving back and learning. With 2,700+ sessions covering every role in every industry, opportunity to witness latest product innovations, thousands of Trailblazers to learn from, and meeting your Ohana; Dreamforce 18 is everything a Salesforce enthusiastic wish for.

As Dreamforce draws up closer, planning your schedule is the most crucial thing to do. This is not a kind of event where you can just jump in with an open agenda. If you want to come home feeling like a king, you must ensure to prepare a must-do list before leaving for San Francisco. As CEPTES is a  Dreamforce regular, we can share some few key things to note for Dreamforce 2018.

Plan your Sessions

Dreamforce will spread across a huge area in downtown San Francisco. With the Moscone Center as the main hub, the event this year will expand to Marriott Marquis, InterContinental, the Palace Hotel, Hilton Union Square, the Park Central, and the Westin St. Francisco. With 2700+ sessions and a large geographical spread, attending all your favorite sessions could be tough at times. With thousands of Trailblazers spreading across session halls, you can expect delays, long queues and even at times housefull boards.

The only thing which may help you is planning out your sessions in advance and register for them. Attending back-to-back sessions will never work. Remember, you have to get from one location to another location. Try to be there at least 15 minutes before, as the entry for free spaces usually starts 10 minutes prior to a session. A little bit of research on the session will help a lot. Not only going by the topic, you must consider who is the speaker and what kind of information you can expect. Dreamforce is not all about attending sessions, always keep some free time to visit customer success expos to witness next-gen innovative products and product demos.

Map out Keynotes

Keynotes are one of the most popular and inspiring elements at Dreamforce. Every year we get to see few of the big industry leaders speak during the four day long conference. Though the lineup for this year Dreamforce is not yet clear, yet we can expect some big names sharing their stories and inspiring thousands in order to transform the way they think, work, and lead. Before going to the event, you need to prioritize the big keynotes and plan your calendar to accommodate them. You should reach at least 45 minutes before to occupy a front side seat. If in case you missed a seat, then you can watch it on the live screens inside the Dreamforce plaza. In case you want to spend more time in customer success expos exploring products or attending sessions, you can watch keynotes later either via Salesforce Live or YouTube.

Customer Expo

Every year Dreamforce witnesses some of the most innovative products. Before going for the event, don’t forget to do a handful of research on the partner companies or exhibitors who are showcasing their products. It is always good to note your preferred products and follow their social media updates just before Dreamforce to stay updated. It is always advisable to book a slot before the event to avail a personalized product demo or product understanding session. At times, it is very difficult to understand a product in detail while visiting a booth because of the rush. Note the booth number of your favorite products before visiting the customer expo.

As an exhibitor during Dreamforce 2018, we are going to present our flagship product ‘DataArchiva’ at booth #1942. You can book your slot for a personalized demo here.

Dreamfest

Dreamforce has plenty to offer when it comes to party and fun. Sponsor parties and the Dreamfest are two of the most eye-catching events. Dreamfest featured most of the popular bands and performers. So far, Salesforce has not revealed who are going to perform during this year Dreamfest, but as always it is going to be one of the most rocking events. You can take some time off from your regular sessions, and keynotes to enjoy a relaxed time with your fellow trailblazers.

Lookout for DataArchiva

Much like all the other trailblazers, we at CEPTES are super excited for Dreamforce 2018. This year’s Dreamforce is going to be special for us, as we are going to launch our flagship product ‘DataArchiva’ during the event. DataArchiva, which is already a Gartner listed and US Gov Cloud Ready application is the only Salesforce native application that can archive Salesforce data. By addressing customer pain points, DataArchiva can save significant data storage cost while enhancing application performance.

We are so excited that we’ve already started our giveaways contest. You can now avail a special 10% discount on DataArchiva annual license cost (above professional plan) till Dreamforce 2018. If you haven’t registered for the demo during Dreamforce, you can book it here. We will be present at our Booth #1942 at the Moscone Center. Don’t forget to visit and say Hello.

Many predicted Salesforce will launch another new cloud application in last year’s event, but instead of that, the CRM giant rolled out fully customized versions of most of its software platforms and tools by taking personalization to a whole new level. But the highlight of Dreamforce 2017 was Salesforce’s introduction of their new product line of mySalesforce app portfolio to empower thousands of businesses around the world go fully bespoke.

mySalesforce was certainly the showstopper of last years Dreamforce event. This allows you to build your own mobile applications which can be published on the Google Play & App Stores. This feature has its own set of tools and designing systems in order to build an app fast. This has the most influential impact on the Community cloud. mySalesforce later enabled many businesses to build their own app and offer their users a complete unified experience.

Einstein is already among the top disruptive innovations of Salesforce, which will change the face of business in coming years. In Dreamforce ’17, Salesforce announced myEinstien. myEinstien uses declarative and point-and-click tools and wizards to build & deploy AI models with the help of Salesforce data. With few clicks, bots and AI models can be created which empowers businesses to build custom AI-powered apps.

Trailhead platform enabled multiple people to enhance their career prospects by learning new skills. myTrailhead was introduced in Dreamforce ’17, which allows businesses to build their own interactive, mobile-optimized, on-demand Trailhead platforms. The product extends with 5 new tools: Trail Checker, Trail Maker, Trail Mixer, Trail Tracker, and Trailhead Profile. myTrailhead offers a gamified and fun learning platform with an easy interface.

After many years of IoT research and unsuccessful projects, Salesforce finally introduced it’s IoT platform, myIoT last year during Dreamforce. This platform enables any Salesforce developers or business user to collect data at the scale of IoT. myIoT highlights a low-code orchestration tool to create point-and-click automation rules governing connected IoT devices, such as a component within a connected machine on a factory floor malfunctioning and triggering a service call to a technician.

Last, but not the least, myLightning was announced after 2 years after the introduction of Salesforce Lightning framework. myLightning made Lightning completely customizable. This comes with an entirely different theme and design system, a re-designed app builder with “dynamic pages” including automated logic and filters, as well as the Lightning Bolt framework and new Lightning Flow tool.

The Trailblazers Enjoyed their Glory

Dreamforce has always been an event to learn new skills from fellow Trailblazers. Dreamforce ’17 witnessed several memorable moments. We saw many experts offered training sessions, attendees earned thousands on badges from the Trailhead Zone after acquiring new skills and passing the exams. Dreamforce ’17 also saw $15 million raised for the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, $1 million for Girl Scouts. Many companies also ‘gave back’ to the community by donating their time, profit, and product to the hurricane victims. The memories of Dreamforce ’17 is still fresh, the dust has not yet settled, and we are here again: Dreamforce 2018. The expectation is high and trailblazers around the world can’t wait for the much-awaited software carnival. Pack your bags, book your tickets and meet us in San Francisco.
