Sep 18, 2023

What. A. Dreamforce!

We hope your week in San Francisco was as eventful as Odaseva’s! It was wonderful to meet everyone who stopped by our booth, watched our speaking sessions, attended our Lunch & Learns and Coffee Connects, and of course our jam-packed Happy Hour. 

Here are some highlights from Odaseva’s Dreamforce week: 

Exciting product announcements

We announced several new products and powerful enhancements to existing products, including:

  • Backup for End-Users for Salesforce Government Cloud Plus: allows easy data restoration to undo mistakes
  • Odaseva Gateway for Government Cloud Plus: provides end-to-end encryption
  • Backup and Restore with 5 minute Recovery Point Objective (RPO): supports the most demanding Salesforce backup and restore use cases
  • Odaseva Data Archive Viewer: view archived objects natively in Salesforce

Learn more about these in our recent press releases:

Odaseva’s VP of Engineering on stage with the Foo Fighters at Dreamfest

What happens when you combine Dreamfest, Odaseva, and the member of a Foo Fighters tribute band?

One of the most iconic moments in Dreamfest history!

Raph Fonrouge, VP of Product Engineering at Odaseva, on stage with The Foo Fighters at Dreamfest!

The Foo Fighters invited Odaseva’s VP of Product Engineering, Raphaël Fonrouge up on stage during Dreamfest to close out  “Everlong,” one of their top songs!

Raph has been in a Foo Fighters tribute band in Paris for years, and it was one of his life’s dreams to play with them. Thanks in part to Salesforce, that dream came true!

Watch the video here.

Oh and Salesforce Ben stopped by our meeting space on Thursday and posted a photo with Raph in his Day 3 roundup here!

Food and drinks and friends at our Happy Hour 

We hosted Happy Hour at Local Edition and it was a blast. There was a full house of Dreamforce attendees snacking, sipping cocktails, and socializing.

Our Tuesday session was “Mastering Data Security: Insights from AAA Customer Use Case” featuring:

  • Sovan Bin, Odaseva CEO

Co-sponsors of Ladies Be Architects Scholarship Program

We were incredibly excited to announce that Odaseva is a proud co-sponsor of the Ladies Be Architects Scholarship Program! The program’s vision is to remove financial barriers that inhibit women and nonbinary folks in achieving their Salesforce architecture career goals. You can learn more about the program here.

Emily (Hay) McCowan, CTA and Lead Technical Architect & Public Sector Solutions Practice Lead at Mav3rik, gave a speech at the Odaseva Happy Hour about the program and sponsorship.
