Anna Roseman, director of product advertising at Salesforce.com, factors out that it’s been one hundred twenty days since Salesforce launched Wave they usually have been arduous at work since then. She says they’ve been speaking to clients, and one factor they heard loud and clear was that enterprise customers have to entry this info on their cellular units.
