With Dreamforce fast approaching, integration will be in the spotlight.

To gain the most from Salesforce’s revolutionary cloud platform, organizations need to quickly and easily connect to all kinds of applications and data sources. Nobody knows this better than Dell Boomi.

Salesforce’s hallmark annual conference, Dreamforce, is fast approaching and integration will be front and center.

Integration has always been critical for Salesforce customers. And that importance was highlighted earlier this year when Salesforce acquired MuleSoft.

Chain restaurants can relate to the old saying, “Too many cooks spoil the soup.” But I’m not talking about a dozen kitchen workers in white aprons stirring a pot of chicken noodle.

I’m talking about the legion of business applications in place at both the corporate and HQ-level in chain restaurant businesses. These software systems often work across hundreds of franchises.

For the most part, these applications are integrated ad hoc, if at all.

Despite a strong work ethic and dedication to accomplishing a mission, many military veterans find it difficult to land a fulfilling job once they complete their careers with the U.S. armed forces.

But they can. And they do. This happens every day in Dell Boomi’s Veteran Internship Program.

At Visual Integrator Consulting, we have the pleasure of working with Fortune 2000 companies on integration projects and building in-house capabilities for integration and digital transformation.

This company had some strong talent in its IT department, but it was treating each integration project as a blank-slate endeavor.

Organizations in Australia and around the world are rapidly adopting cloud applications to manage financials, customers, operations, human resources and more. Yet those systems can’t continue to exist as data islands. Data silos prevent businesses from developing a holistic approach to building a competitive advantage.

Blockchain, a technology for maintaining a distributed system of records protected by cryptography, shows great potential for securely automating business transactions and processes.
