AWS and Salesforce may say 'Sayonara' to Oracle database - CIO Dive

AWS and Salesforce may say 'Sayonara' to Oracle database - CIO Dive | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
Salesforce and Amazon are both planning on entirely eliminating Oracle software from crucial business systems and replacing it "with open-source database software alternatives," reports The Information. Oracle Founder and CTO Larry Ellison's colorful remarks about the companies in the past is said to have impacted the move. 
Amazon already transitioned two internal databases that take care of its e-commerce operation to open-source NoSQL, reports Bloomberg. Salesforce is developing an internal database — code-named "Sayonara" — for its customer management and marketing automation software. Salesforce plans to end its reliance on Oracle by 2023. 
Oracle's database is currently considered the top in the world, according to The Information, but its reputation is overshadowed by price. There are now cheaper alternatives for customers.

What Google and Salesforce’s Shared Data Play Means for Marketers

What Google and Salesforce’s Shared Data Play Means for Marketers | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
On Monday, Salesforce and Google announced they are pooling data and cloud resources together, letting marketers view stats from both platforms within Salesforce Marketing Cloud and Google Analytics dashboards.

According to Google, this is the first time Analytics have been deeply integrated into a CRM solution and a deal between the two companies. One strong component hints at Saleforce’s move into advertising: Customers will be able to purchase Google ads based on how consumers respond to email, SMS and push notification campaigns.

Up until now, marketers have been using workarounds to see both sets of data at the same time; the partnership will likely ameliorate this issue, particularly for smaller brands that have less resources.

Google and Salesforce sign massive strategic partnership - VentureBeat

Google and Salesforce sign massive strategic partnership - VentureBeat | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
Google and Salesforce announced a massive strategic partnership today that’s aimed at driving value across their mutual customers.

As part of the deal, Salesforce plans to use Google Cloud Platform infrastructure as a preferred partner to power the tech titan’s international expansion. Google, for its part, will use Salesforce as its preferred CRM provider for selling its cloud services.

In addition, Salesforce is working to integrate its data with Google’s G Suite productivity service, so joint customers will be able to more easily access Salesforce information within Gmail, Google Sheets and other products. Joint customers will also be able to connect Salesforce’s sales and marketing software with Google Analytics 360, the paid version of the popular analytics service.
CYDigital/marteq.io's insight:

A partnership between the two took place about 7-8 years ago, and fizzled. I'm not seeing any beef in this announcement.

Dreamforce 2017 - AI adoption is being driven by C-Suite, but best owned by IT - Diginomica

Dreamforce 2017 - AI adoption is being driven by C-Suite, but best owned by IT - Diginomica | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
Based on data from more than 1,800 Salesforce customers worldwide, 77% of companies already using AI expect to increase their spend over the next 12 months, while 20% of those not using AI intend to make an investment.

The State of Salesforce report indicates that while IT retains responsibility for Salesforce rollouts, the interest in AI is coming from the very top of the C-suite. What’s interesting is what the main business benefit is currently seen to be, with nearly two-thirds of C-suite execs seeing AI as an enabler for better customer care and satisfaction.

After that, there’s a massive gap before sales opportunity qualification shows up in pole position on 11%, followed by overall effectiveness on 10%.

Perhaps somewhat alarmingly, those are followed by a wildly-generic ‘Other’ on 7%, which seems to suggest something of a leap of faith. But then, according to Bluewolf, only 36% of users actually measure the ROI of their Salesforce investment! (The rest just guess?)

Salesforce Announcements from Dreamforce - VentureBeat

Salesforce Announcements from Dreamforce - VentureBeat | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it

"Customers of Salesforce software will soon be able to further personalize their environments, like providing custom color schemes and logos for their corporate users, so the software hews closer to a company’s corporate identity. In addition, businesses will be able to provision and deploy their own white-labeled version of Salesforce applications built using Lightning components into the iOS App Store and Google Play Store.

 

That means businesses will be able to more easily create task-specific apps that integrate with their Salesforce data, while still being able to brand them and launch them independently.

 

Speaking of Lightning, Salesforce’s drag-and-drop interface builder, it’s getting an upgrade with the ability to support dynamic pages so that administrators can set up custom logic that shows or hides elements when conditions are met."

 

https://venturebeat.com/2017/11/06/salesforce-bets-big-on-personalization-with-software-updates/

 

"Salesforce is launching a new feature that uses machine learning to let customers make predictions based on data stored with the tech titan’s software. Einstein Prediction Builder is designed to take any of the fields that users have set up inside a piece of software — like Salesforce’s Sales Cloud CRM — and generate predictions for future outcomes based on saved data.

 

The feature is designed to make it easier for companies and users who don’t have machine learning expertise to reap the benefits of the current explosion in AI technology. Custom predictions can be set up through a visual editor and don’t require coding of any sort."

 

https://venturebeat.com/2017/11/06/salesforce-aims-to-make-ai-predictions-easier-for-its-customers/

 

"Salesforce announced plans today to bring automated bots to its Einstein AI platform. The bots, which can include conversational AI for natural language interactions, will be deployed on apps and websites to give businesses the ability to deliver services to customers. Einstein bots are currently being used by a handful of pilot customers, like Hulu, and will be made generally available to Salesforce customers in mid-2018."

"Quip, the collaboration service owned by Salesforce, announced today that it will be opening a developer platform so third parties can create custom document add-ins. This is designed to let customers work more effectively by adding functionality that they need, like project planning tools."

Salesforce: why so much hype? - Enterprise Irregulars

Salesforce: why so much hype? - Enterprise Irregulars | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
IDC in an annual study commissioned by Salesforce says the ecosystem of customers and partners will drive the creation of 3.3 million new jobs and more than $859 billion in new business revenues worldwide by 2022. In addition, by 2022 the Salesforce partner ecosystem will gain $5.18 for every dollar Salesforce earns. To generate revenue you need a product, you need a business model, and you need a customer channel. You need more like a strong brand but let’s stay with those three. Salesforce does not help companies build products or services. Foxconn, Flex, IDEO and many Tier 1 and 2 suppliers do.  It does not help you with your business model or order entry or billing. It does help you with your channel, but far less than you may think. It helps with direct sales force automation, much less with resellers, franchisees, store or ecommerce sales. It helps with digital marketing but the world still spends way more on trade promotions and analog advertising on TV, billboards and other media. So taking credit for generating customer revenues seems to be a stretch.
CYDigital/marteq.io's insight:

Included in the delineated hype is AI. Let's see what next week shakes out to be, but it's much harder to generate a profitable revenue stream from the ecosystem than you may think.

Salesforce Takes the Guesswork Out of Audience Segmentation with AI for Marketers

Salesforce Takes the Guesswork Out of Audience Segmentation with AI for Marketers | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
To that end, 57% of marketers say using artificial intelligence (AI) is essential for creating 1-to-1 marketing experiences; however, actually delivering these experiences is difficult. More often than not, AI is still seen as the domain of data scientists with extensive training. Without access to these data gurus, many marketers think they must rely on backward-looking analytics, often using manual (or somewhat manual) processes to do things like identifying target audiences or choosing the content and offers they send.

But AI isn’t just for data scientists anymore. By embedding it into the apps and workflows where power users spend their time, Salesforce Einstein is democratizing AI and putting it in the hands of marketers, making things like predicting consumer engagement and campaign planning easier.
CYDigital/marteq.io's insight:

It's the only real differentiator out there right now.

Deduping in Salesforce: The complete how-to - CIO.com | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
Every enterprise system has the risk of data quality problems, but customer relationship management (CRM) and marketing automation systems are incredibly vulnerable to incomplete records, bad data, and duplicate records.  Data comes from too many flaky sources, and there aren’t enough incentives for organizations and people to really follow standards.  Fortunately, a number of services and tools have arisen to automagically improve data quality (in particular, Salesforce’s Data.com).  When it comes to deduping, though, even the best  tools out there  need to be used with careful attention to detail and the prep work that can take days.  We’ll show you how to avoid the main pitfalls here.

Salesforce creates AI tool for talking to databases - VentureBeat

Salesforce creates AI tool for talking to databases - VentureBeat | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
New research from Salesforce shows that there’s hope on the horizon for people who want to understand information stored in databases without knowing the programming language typically used to query those systems. The company’s research arm laid out a new system called Seq2SQL in a research paper today that is designed to translate natural language questions and turn them into database queries written in the Structured Query Language, better known as SQL.

Systems like Seq2SQL could have a major impact on companies like Salesforce and other tech software providers. In the past, nontechnical employees would ask SQL experts to run queries for them, especially if they had complicated questions of company data. At least in theory, we should enter a future where it’s easier for people who aren’t SQL experts to learn what they need to know without asking someone else.
