After spending an hour promoting the charitable efforts of Salesforce.com, the Salesforce CEO cued the band to fire-up the crowd. After the final chorus, he explained how Salesforce's new analytics cloud — called Wave — will help his company become a customer success platform.

Bliss, who has a quarter-century experience in customer experience (CX) positions at five corporations, delivered a concise five-point job description today to a CX-savvy audience at Totango's annual Customer Success Summit in San Francisco.
She followed Totango CEO Guy Nirpaz, who provided his own six-point manifesto for customer success to the standing-room-only crowd of 400 marketing professionals from eight countries.
