Salesforce Shoots for Facebook-Level Mobile App Success

customer experience, Salesforce Shoots for Facebook-Level Mobile App Success

Facebook does it. Can Salesforce?

The company released its new Salesforce1 Mobile App today. The app adds more than 30 new features that Salesforce said will enable users to manage any business process from a mobile device.

The new-features launch comes about six months after the CRM provider launched its Salesforce1 platform at its Dreamforce 2013 conference.

That platform, geared toward offering Salesforce software users a more full bodied mobile app building toolkit, played off the provider’s February 2013 release of its mobile app development platform.

“People spend 17 percent of their time on Facebook -- that’s a killer app,” Michael Peachey, senior director of Mobile Products for Salesforce, told CMSWire. “In terms of adoption, there are a number of fundamental things going on there. No. 1 -- it’s connected to people who you like, and people you want to share information with.”

Finally, someone has stood up and said it. Digital business is not about IT,  applications, software, the cloud or even — as much as it pains us to say it — information management.

Digital business is a mindset. A different way of thinking about business. It includes all the above elements, but it is more than the sum of those parts. According to new research from Gartner, digital business is the new enterprise lingua franca, with digital expertise spread across the entire organization.

Passwords are passé. In five years, iris recognition and facial dimensions could be common sign-on techniques for mobile devices. That's the outlook for biometrics in the age of powerful mobile devices, according to identity solution provider MorphoTrust USA.

Mark DiFraia, senior director for solution strategy at the company, told CMSWire this week that "mobile devices have matured to the point where they can handle more than one mode of biometrics," primarily because of the capabilities of the cameras and the processors.

NICE Systems Wants to Hear Your Voice

Sometimes, proving who you are can be difficult. To make phone authentication easier, customer interaction management provider NICE Systems has unveiled its real-time authentication solution that requires only your voice.

The system's Seamless Passive Enrollment process creates a voice print from previous callings, so that users do not have to set up their own voice profiles.

"If a customer has called before, they can be automatically authenticated using their voice the very next time they call," NICE Enterprise Group Yochai Rozenblat said in a statement.

customer experience, Is the Marketing Cloud Battleground Not Quite Set?

It’s SAP’s turn to go fishing for marketing software.

“SAP really needs to step it up on the marketing side of things,” Ian Michiels, principal and CEO of Pleasanton, Calif.-based Gleanster Research, told CMSWire yesterday as SAP announced it acquired behavioral marketing cloud provider SeeWhy

“Both Adobe and Oracle have extremely compelling stories to tell, but they are largely just stories,” Michiels added. “Only a handful of clients, if any, are using comprehensive suite offerings."

The Rise and Fall of the Imperial Enterprise DAM

2014-20-May-Darth-Vader-Valet.jpgWhen management gets wind of an up and coming software application and decides it's necessary for business objectives, the results are often the same. A decision is made to adopt one product -- to the exclusion of all others -- which everyone will be expected to use.

I think it's folly to impose a monolithic solution to cover the entire Digital Asset Management needs of an enterprise. An integrated, best of breed approach is more likely to succeed.

FBI Warns: Check Your Windows PC for a RAT

2014-20-May-Boy-with-many-rats.jpg.jpg

The latest warning from the FBI bears a strange resemblance to a trailer for a poltergeist experience. Does your mouse cursor move erratically with no input from you? Does your web camera light unexpectedly turn on? Does your monitor turn off -- for no apparent reason?

In reality, the warning is about Blackshades, a remote access tool malware that affects Microsoft Windows based operating systems.

According to the FBI, the malicious remote administration tool (RAT) has been used to steal passwords and banking credentials, hack into social media accounts and access documents, photos and other computer files. The program can also record all keystrokes, activate webcams to spy on victims, “hold a computer for ransom” and use the computer in distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.

The malware gained notoriety in a "sextortion" case involving a teen beauty queen last summer.
