Best of the 27th Release: Salesforce to Salesforce
At the 6th annual Dreamforce conference this week in San Francisco, attendees were treated to an impressive keynote demonstration of their Winter '09 CRM. The 27th release in less than 10 years does not disappoint, but there was one new feature that really shone.

George Hu, Salesforce.com's EVP of Applications and Marketing, illustrated the value of Salesforce to Salesforce by touching on the partnership between Delta and Air France.
