Salesforce introduced new platform services to harness the power of the Fourth Industrial Revolution at Dreamforce. Now every Trailblazer—the hundreds of millions of individuals and their organizations using Salesforce to drive innovation, grow their careers and transform their businesses—will be able to deliver smarter, more personalized digital experiences that place the customer at the center of their business.

"The Fourth Industrial Revolution is reshaping every business, industry and economy, and the customer is at the center of it all," said Marc Benioff, Chairman and CEO, Salesforce. "Salesforce is delivering breakthrough technologies like artificial intelligence to empower Trailblazers to deliver customer success, develop their careers and contribute to society in meaningful ways."
