Thanks for taking the time.Excited to tell you about what’s new with the platform.We’ve been busy – great new mobile services announcement today.
For thirteen years, salesforce.com has been a driver for enterprise cloud computing.With cloud computing, we are helping the world shift from mainframe and client-server to cloud computing.Cloud computing is a delivery model that allows you to access any application over the Internet. It provides enterprises the fastest path to success. Unlike client server and mainframe, you don’t have to buy or manage hardware, software or infrastructure. With a subscription model, you pay fixed predictable monthly payments with no large, upfront capital expenditures. And with automatic upgrades, we automatically upgrade you three times a year. These means that you are always getting the latest innovation so you can focus on your business, not technology.
We've created the Salesforce Platform to allow you to deliver innovation to your company as quickly as possible. The Salesforce Platform means that your IT group doesn’t need to spend time managing hardware and software infrastructure. Instead, they can focus on building the innovative applications your company needs. And for your business analysts in your company, they now have the freedom to build apps, too, for their business needs.The result is that our customers have created over 3.0 million applications on the Salesforce platform. You've made it the number one enterprise cloud platform in the world. It’s the number one cloud platform for developers, for business experts, for ISVs, and we've created a complete set of services so you can deliver to your organization the next generation of social and mobile application.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzeIrH2pIZchttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9falmVgjq6o&feature=g-all-uThe Social Enterprise vision really started with our work with Toyota a little over a year ago. They came to us. They said what is the next generation car? We want from your perspective. What do you think that we should be doing? We said you have all these friends on Facebook. Why is my car not my friend? You have a Toyota Corolla. You've got a Toyota Tacoma. Why do we not have a Toyota Friend? That car can be on the network. The car could talk to you. It can tell you if it is ready to be charged. It tells you if it needs maintenance. The car is your friend. That was a hugely transformational idea for Toyota.And, in fact, we've been working on that car with Toyota for over a year, and we showed it, which is now called the Fun-Vii, at the Tokyo motor show in December. And when we looked at all of our customers and all of their products, we have to ask that question, "How do all of our products become social?”Company Background:TOYOTA Motor's new marketing companies began operations in January 2010. One of them is TMSM(Toyota Motor Sales & Marketing Corporation), the holding company focus on the oversea market in the worldwide. The other one is TMJ(Toyota marketing Japan Ltd.), the strategic company in Japan market. The above two companies' mission is to reflect the market voice to manufacturing section of Toyota. And they are strategic positioning in the marketing of all the Toyota in the future.In addition, the industry analysts says " They revolutionize the Japanese advertising industry.".Challenge: Damaged reputation and bad press Several recallsNot able to reach customers on their times (voicing concerns online, via twitter, and various social spaces)Bad press and recalls; situation where they knew they needed to improve their customer service channels and communication across the board and do something that would make their customers feel special and part of a unique community; marc offered this through our platformProposed solution for Toyota: dialogue between you and your car! Owners, dealers, employees, and the star of the show: the car. All about going cloud 2: social, mobile, open-customer portal, mobile chatter, dealer portal, ipad usageSales process here: (future, visionary, emotional); see the demo in action and actually hold in their hands; provide force.com in every deal million $ of larger, all involved understanding value of our platform and positioning it as a key differentiator; i.e. sky is the limit and can truly do anything
