PeopleLinx' Michael Idinopulos takes an expansive and interesting look
at Dreamforce
in this blog post, particularly noticing the confusing glut of analytical products.

BTW, PeopleLinx partially introduced its new app on the Salesforce1 platform at Dreamforce, and Idinopulos tells me they will be officially announcing it once it's live in the AppExchange later this fall. On the Dreamforce website, PeopleLinx' session at the event is described as follows:

"This session will look at real-world examples of how large B2B sales organizations are bridging the gap between social selling and CRM integration, and improving sales team effectiveness in the process. The session will also provide the first public demo of PeopleLinx’s “Social To-Do List”, a new Salesforce1 app that automatically guides sales professionals to integrate social connections into pipeline management across desktop and mobile devices."

Apparently, this is what the City of Philadelphia talked about at Dreamforce yesterday: "Cities of the future are here now and are leveraging Salesforce. The city of Philadelphia is building their city on IoCP and their session can be found here: We Built this City on IoCP: Connecting Citizen to the Cloud."
