Dreamforce — wow — what a week! Whether you experienced the magic in person, joined the millions of online attendees, or didn’t have a chance to tune in this year — we’ve got you covered with a recap of the 10 top moments at Dreamforce ‘19.
#1: Salesforce announces Customer 360 Truth
One of the biggest announcements during the Dreamforce opening keynote was Customer 360 Truth. Customer 360 Truth, which includes MuleSoft, helps companies unify their data across all touchpoints to build a single source of truth (SSOT) about their customers.

#2: Integration is now accessible to all with clicks-not-code
We introduced a clicks-not-code approach to connectivity, and are on a journey to make the entire end-to-end integration process dramatically simpler. Now anyone can become an Integration Trailblazer and easily connect data sources — wherever that data resides.

These Accelerators will be generally available early next year. Stay tuned!
#5: BMW unlocks data to create connected experiences
During the Integration Keynote, Rene Wies, VP of Group IT, Sales, and Marketing at BMW, explained that with Anypoint Platform, BMW has interconnected all of its business-critical systems to give employees — including salespeople, technicians, and customer associates — access to the right data at every touchpoint.

#6: You can now create custom developer portals with API Community Manager

#7: HSBC is building the ‘Bank of the Future’ powered by MuleSoft
According to Dinesh Keswani, group CTO and CIO, HSBC has been able to “reduce our app development time by 75% and release new functionality to consumers every two weeks versus once a quarter.” They’re also using MuleSoft’s API Community Manager to engage 30k+ developers, internally and externally!

#8: MuleSoft extends Anypoint Runtime Fabric to Google Cloud
MuleSoft announced that it will extend its Anypoint Runtime Fabric to run on Google Cloud.
Google Cloud customers will be able to easily manage business critical applications within their existing infrastructure, in the cloud or in a hybrid environment. Organizations will also be able to aggregate their data in Google Cloud to drive relevant insights across previously disparate data silos with a new Google Cloud connector.
