Ms. Patel will be demoing Salesforce's new joined reports functionality, introduced in the Spring 2012 release, and providing some tricks and tips for using this powerful new format. The joined report format lets you view different types of information in a single report. A joined report consists of up to five report blocks, which you add to the report to create multiple views of your data.
The Salesforce Streaming API enables near real-time processing of data, allowing for new and innovative applications to be built on top of Force.com. MuleSoft is the first company to support the Salesforce Streaming API, and has enabled its use in environments as diverse as Facebook, JP Morgan, and UCSF. In this talk, David Thomson, a long time Salesforce architect and Integration Strategy Lead for MuleSoft, will show what sorts of new applications can be built with the Streaming API.
