Web 2.0 Philosophy
Just returned from Tour de Force in Silicon Valley – another interesting, enjoyable and well attended event . After the morning’s keynote the CODA stand was again a very busy location with non-stop stream of inquiries from existing salesforce.com customers, other software developer companies and service organizations exploring the possibility of adding CODA 2go into their ‘kitbag in the cloud’ .
This piece on pcworld.com from Wednesday covers some of the headline messages from the keynote but it was Sheryl’s closing comments about Web 2.0 philosophy I want to highlight – “Focus on the foundation and let users build what they want.” I think this idea is central to what CODA is delivering on the platform – adding powerful yet highly flexible accounting components that users and 3rd parties can build into their overall solution.
CODA itself continues to discover more functionality on the force.com platform that we can leverage from our application ( a separate blog entry will cover that soon ), shortly the salesforce community will find international accounting capabilities also running 100% natively on the platform that is already integrated with CRM and ready to integrate into their solutions.
