In fewer than three weeks, an estimated 100,000 attendees will descend upon Dreamforce in San Francisco anxious to partake in the 1,500 sessions, inspiring product and industry keynotes, Cloud Expo, training opportunities, and of course the amazing dinners, parties, and social events (Foo Fighters, anyone?). Special guests include Satya Nadella (CEO, Microsoft), Larry Baer (President and CEO, San Francisco Giants), Goldie Hawn (Founder, The Hawn Foundation), Travis Kalanick (Co-founder and CEO, Uber Technologies), Patricia Arquette (Academy Award Winner and Activist), and many more.

This year will feature an special Women’s Leadership Summit. Hoping to inspire everyone in the tech industry to gender equality and inclusion, the focus is on women who have succeeded in predominantly male fields. Speakers include Susan Wojcicki (CEO, YouTube), Mary Molony (CEO, Coder Dojo), Lyndsey Scott (actress, model and app developer), and Jessica Alba (actress and co-founder of the Honest Company).

Throughout the event, you will have the opportunity to stroll through the world’s largest cloud ecosystem with hundreds of partners showcasing thousands of solutions. The Cloud Expo is the best way to get the most out of Salesforce products and solutions. See live demos and meet face-to-face with more than 400 cloud-computing companies.

Server-side CRM integration for Gmail and Google Apps
Riva now delivers reliable, server-side integration between a dozen of the world’s best CRMs – including Salesforce – with Gmail and Google Apps! Riva seamlessly syncs Salesforce contacts, calendar events, tasks, email, opportunities, cases, custom fields, and custom objects. Riva also provides advanced configuration options in terms of how these items get synced. And, because Riva syncs server-side, we sync Salesforce to all Gmail and Google Apps email clients, including Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Outlook for Windows and Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android, and other mobile devices.

InsideView for Riva Insight
At Dreamforce 2014, we announced Riva Insight, our CRM and social side panel for Outlook and IBM Notes. Riva Insight provides immediate access to context-aware company and contact data directly from within Outlook and IBM Notes. Riva’s server-side sync capabilities and Outlook / Notes CRM and social side panel deliver incredible flexibility and convenience for CRM users.

Now you can kick up your CRM user adoption and success even more with InsideView for Riva Insight. Imagine having access to InsideView’s company and contact data directly from within Outlook and IBM Notes. For now we offer read-only access, but, in time, the integration will deliver full read-write capabilities and you’ll be able to use the integration to enrich contact and account information in your CRM and reduce manual data entry.

Email attachment integration for external storage systems
Significantly reduce the cost of your CRM by storing email attachments in leading cloud and on-premise storage solutions including Microsoft Azure Storage, Microsoft OneDrive, Microsoft SharePoint Documents, Amazon S3, Dropbox, and Box.net.

Advanced configuration capabilities
In addition to providing the best way to sync contacts, calendars, tasks, email, and more between Salesforce and Outlook, Gmail, Google Apps, IBM Notes and Domino, and GroupWise, we offer advanced configuration options to meet your custom sync requirements and unlock the full potential of Salesforce.
