If Hunter S. Thompson and Walt Disney put on a tech conference, it would look a lot like Salesforce Dreamforce.

Salesforce.com Inc. 's annual customer and partner conference took over the Moscone Center and surrounding neighborhood like a capitalist Woodstock from November 6-9. Costumed mascots roamed the campus, mixed with monks -- actual monks! -- and the usual tech conference crowd in jeans.

During the conference, Salesforce cemented its relationship with Google, expanded its AI implementation and upgraded its Quip collaboration service.

Here's some of what we saw:

Live Digital Audio

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
