Salesforce has never believed in understatement. They are bringing in Mr. “Shock and Awe” himself to speak at a conference they are calling “the cloud computing event of the year.” Former Secretary of State, and four-star General Colin Powell will speak at Dreamforce, the annual Salesforce.com user and developer conference.
This is the seventh time Salesforce has held the event, but it is the first time they are promoting it primarily as a “cloud computing event.”
They expect 12,000 attendees at the San Francisco Moscone Center. It will be held November 17-20, 2009. Admission to the keynote and expo hall is free; over 200 companies will exhibit, including Accenture, Appirio, Astadia, Cast Iron Systems, QlikTech International, IBM, Cisco, Vetrazzo, Vtrenz, and Xactly.
