Talk: Driving Business Value with Salesforce
Salesforce is merely a technology enabler built originally to support traditional CRM functions (i.e. Sales, Service, Marketing and Commerce). Gaining value from an investment in the platform comes from attention to alignment of its usage to corporate goals and aspirations. Many projects fail for several reasons related to misalignments on many fronts, including but not limited to : IT and Business coordination, lack of integration to valuable data sources, poor initial and follow-up training, lack of product/project ownership. In this session, Jim will share his experience from his work over the last decades of client work; focusing on best practices, lessons learned, and leading indicators of success or failure.
