Ecosystem Two-Dot-Oh


Salesforce this week announced significant enhancements to its AppExchange Partner Program, including a $100 million Salesforce Platform Fund to encourage developers of AI-driven solutions, as well as changes to its partner business model. Salesforce arguably was the first kid on the block with a partner program of this kind in which buyers could access a large community of apps based on a single standard from a single store.

Google Fiber's Long, Tough Road Is Full of Twists and Turns


Alphabet has been facing significant roadblocks in expanding Google Fiber into new U.S. cities, in part due to significant competitive and legal challenges from incumbent broadband providers like AT&T and Comcast.

CRM innovations in recent years have had a significant impact on campaigns and nonprofit organizations, according to CFB Strategies President Trace Anderson. “Traditionally in the campaign world, it was an old-school mentality of just collecting checks,” he said. “Even when I started working in politics, from 2006 to 2008, everything was done by hand.
