Salesforce Summer 15 Feature: Empowering Partners to Grow Their Business (and Yours) Faster

Posted by Prakash Rao

In many organizations, Partner ecosystems are essential to growth. This reliance on partners to supply and distribute products and services pushes organizations to share business processes and data to reduce friction. A key to driving desired outcomes is visibility into the right data at the right time.

In the past, Salesforce Partner and Customer Community users had read-only access to canned reports provided by the organization. Partners want to be in the driver’s seat to build and customize their own reports in their own folders. They want to be able to view actionable data for their teams in the same place they collaborate on deals.

Your voices have been heard! Salesforce used this Idea on the IdeaExchange to shape a new feature called Community Reporting that will debut with Summer 15 release.

A Beginner's Guide to Choosing Angular

I have a small desktop application that I wrote awhile ago using C# and Winforms. I am currently rewriting it using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Since I'm using web technologies, I figured this is a great way to work with one of the many MV* frameworks available. However, choosing one to work with seems like a daunting task. I checked out TodoMVC to see what developing with each of these libraries would entail. Reading the code of these various frameworks is important but doesn't give me the experience of actually working with them.  Before beginning to code, I narrowed my choices down to Angular and Backbone. I chose these two because Angular is an all in one framework whereas Backbone is an MVC library.

Salesforce Summer 15: Help Sales Reps Better Know Their Customers

Sales reps want to spend as much time as possible in front of prospects and clients. The easiest way to increase this face time is to decrease the amount of time they have to spend doing other activities. Some of the activities that take place outside of client meetings can be tied in a positive way to ROI, such as research that occurs prior to these all-important face to face meetings. If we can find ways to make time spent in these activities more effective (and possibly take less time), we can show direct increases in ROI over time.

One new feature in the Salesforce Summer 15 release does just this, and gives us some insight into the direction sales research is going on the platform.
