For those who were unable to attend the conference or would like a re-cap on the keynotes, you can view them here.
The biggest discussion to come out of the conference was the release of Salesforce1, a new app by Salesforce.com. Salesforce1 accelerates the development and deployment of apps and allows customers to create their own apps which will be 100% white label meaning the customer can brand the entirety of their app. What makes Salesforce1 so marketable is the API connectivity, granting the customer access to stay connected.
An example of how this app could be utilized would be Phillips vision for dental hygiene. A toothbrush which will communicate with your smartphone, and track all movement via GPS. It will then give you up-to-date information on how well you are brushing and what you may be doing wrong. – Phenominal.
