  • We won’t be doing any “road maps” today. Everything we’re here to discuss with you is either ready for use, or at a minimum ready for your evaluation, right now.
  • We prefer to define the cloud, not as a bundle of technologies, but as a set of promises that the experience of acquiring and using IT capability can be fundamentally improved.
  • Moving away from the idea of a familiar development model, “only cloudier”, has allowed the developer to elevate the starting point for application construction
  • We move the complete freedom of a custom logic capability up into a metadata layer, uniquely combining the power of custom logic with the economy and robustness of a full multi-tenant environment. Someday, others will do likewise: for now, is unique in delivering this combination of characteristics.
  • When you design from Day 1 for massive sharing, you build in a representation of data ownership from the bottom up instead of trying to construct a perimeter
  • Granular, governable and auditable privilege assignment elevates security in the cloud above what’s achieved in legacy environments
  • Comprehensive reviews, and cost-effective amortization of security costs across multiple tenants enables superior trust at competitive prices
  • Partitioning of data enables compliance with regulation; further, liberating the latent value of legacy IT assets is often the most unexpected bonus of the cloud – and it’s “the” cloud, one common cloud with many interoperable services, not multiple clouds representing separate silos
  • We move the complete freedom of a custom logic capability up into a metadata layer, uniquely combining the power of custom logic with the economy and robustness of a full multi-tenant environment. Someday, others will do likewise: for now, is unique in delivering this combination of characteristics.
  • With, it’s easy to build Cloud 2 apps. Any app you build on can immediately take advantage of Chatter for collaboration, with no code required. Just select what applications and data (objects and fields) you want to enable, and updates to them will automatically appear in followers’ feeds, so your users will never again miss important information they need to be successful.
  • Measurable productivity improvement, independently estimated by three separate studies, is the result
  • But it’s not IT’s fault. The villains here are the traditional hardware and software vendors who are holding us back. Today, it just takes too long to build and deploy custom apps for your business. These solutions start by making us install and configure a stack. Then, even though any great developer can write code in a reasonable amount of time, it can take weeks or months to tune it, test it, deploy it, and patch it. On average, it takes about 8 months to build a custom app on traditional hardware and software. And of course, by the time you’ve built the app, the requirements have changed and you are starting over again. This isn’t a way to build an deploy custom apps for your company.
