Top 10 Dreamforce Highlights 2019
1. Salesforce Content Management System
With Salesforce CMS, any user can easily create and deliver content to any channel. Almost every organization is striving to create and deliver personalized content to its customers at each touchpoint. And in this digital era and Social Media boom, these touchpoints are growing on a daily basis. This is where the legacy CMS platforms are lacking the firepower to cope with the ever-evolving customer touchpoints. That is why Salesforce has reinvented the CMS to cater to the need of the digital marketers and deliver personalized content at every touchpoint throughout the customer journey.
The Salesforce CMS is truly Omni-Channel and designed to help you create content, define content access, define channels, share content across communities, and limit access. Salesforce claims that this hybrid CMS is powerfully simple, fast, flexible, and connected.
2. Data Masking for Sandboxes
Improper data governance can affect our business with major consequences such as data insecurity and loss of customer trust. With the recent tightening up of security compliance, all the companies are mandatorily required to evaluate their technical and organizational controls to ensure compliance.
With complex privacy requirements in mind, the Salesforce team has curated its new Data Masking tool to help us customize, build, and test on Salesforce while protecting private data. The Data Masking tool actually secures your data in three ways –
Anonymization, which scrambles a field’s contentsPseudonymization, which converts a field into unrelated, but readable valuesDeletion, which converts a field to an empty data set
3. Dreamforce Highlight – Pardot Sandbox
Pardot Sandbox – this Dreamforce Highlight is one of the most awaited features that most of the marketers have been waiting for. Pardot Sandboxes can help the marketers and partners to perform tests of the marketing journey configured in the engagement studio and make any necessary changes to the configuration before publishing. This will ensure that the rules and workflows are configured the way the marketer is expecting.

This is seamlessly done through the app’s centralized hub, where all the users can connect multiple data sources and share data across departments.
5. Dynamic Forms and Actions
This Dreamforce Highlight is about the lightning feature by Salesforce. In the evolution of Lightning record pages, the next big step is Dynamic Forms. With this Dynamic form, you can migrate the fields and sections from the page layout to an individual component into the lightning app builder. We can customize and configure them as the other components on the page.
Dynamic forms can benefit us through an instant upgrade from page layout, visibility rules to show and hide fields and sections, manage the fields and sections on your pages in the Lightning App Builder, and take advantage of a single assignment model for the Lightning page instead of the dual model of assigning a Lightning page and a page layout.
6. Interactive Email
Another best Dreamforce Highlights for marketers is Salesforce’s acquisition of Rebel – a leader in Interactive mail. Rebel’s technology is soon to be integrated with Salesforce Marketing Cloud to enhance personalized email marketing journeys with Email Studio and Journey Builder.
Transform the usual email to a two-way channel through the new interactive email solution. You can enable interactive email to allow your customers to share feedback or take action without them leaving their inbox. Rather than sending your customers from their inbox to a website or mobile app, you can turn the emails into an extension of the website. This Interactive email feature can assist you in getting a better conversion through improved customer experience.
