Dreamforce 19 Overview Hoghlights and Announcement

Evergreen: Serverless Functions & Compute for Customer 360 Platform

This is a new addition to the customer 360 platform that brings in serverless function based on fully-managed Kubernetes, support for open programming languages and commonly used high-performance data stores.
Using Evergreen we can use any supported language in Salesforce org and can use the large library which comes with those language. Currently we have many limitation in Apex which I think we can easily overcome using those language.

Dreamforce 19 Salesforce Evergreen

Evergreen supports technologies and architectural patterns that make development teams productive and happy:

  • Functions-as-a-Service for writing business logic and event processing in languages like Node.js, Java and Apex. Using the full power of those languages’ package ecosystems. Functions can be triggered directly from Apex or using Platform Events, with many more invocation types and event sources to come.
  • Microservices for building serverless HTTP apps and APIs that can be quickly evolved by small agile teams and composed into complex, engaging digital experiences. Services and functions are serverless, consume no resources when idle and automatically and elastically scale with traffic.
  • Managed data stores like Postgres, Apache Kafka and Redis that complement the Salesforce Data APIs for high-performance persistence and real-time eventing.

You can signup to receive update on Evergreen and can quickly take a look at demo in DF. This will be available as Developer preview in Spring 20.

Einstein Voice for Everyone

Einstein Voice, new voice intelligence applies natural language processing to call transcriptions – providing sales and service teams with insights and trends that will drive smarter, more personalized customer engagement:

  • Service Cloud Voice: It integrates telephony inside Service Cloud, unifying phone, digital channels and CRM data in real-time in one centralized console. Service Cloud Voice can also integrate with transcription services  that convert voice to text in real time, enabling Einstein to serve up relevant AI-powered recommended responses, knowledge articles and next best actions as service agents are on voice calls.
  • Einstein Call Coaching:With the newest Sales Cloud capability, managers are able to see insights and trends within conversational data. Natural language processing identifies keywords in sales call transcripts, alerting managers to trends like a spike in competitor mentions, or best practices on topics like objection handling or pricing discussions. Those insights can then be used to provide sales reps with personalized coaching on how to improve the customer buying experience. 

Using Einstein Agent/Rep will be able to get more details and Can easily make notes without missing any details. Later these details can be used to train the reps. We can test this in new Salesforce Mobile App.
