InsideView Recruits Smart Agents at Dreamforce 2009 Super-Powering Sales 2.0 With Intrigue and Spy Games

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/12/09 -- Sales 2.0 leader InsideView today sent a critical "Eyes-Only" alert out to Dreamforce 2009 conference attendees. According to InsideView, Dreamforce will be the world's center of intrigue and excitement this year as visitors learn from InsideView how to become Smart Agents like no other Bond or Powers could ever hope to be. With inspired "missions" assigned prior to and throughout Dreamforce, Smart Agents will vie for the keys to an Aston Martin DB9 Volante.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, begins by clicking over to www.InsideView.com/SmartAgent before or during the Dreamforce conference. Once there you can complete your first Smart Agent Mission online, begin to learn more about the Sales Intelligence potential of your CRM, and be entered for a chance to win a weekend rental of the seminal secret agent chase car: the Aston Martin DB9 Volante. While there you will also be able to RSVP for Sales 2.0 Night at Dreamforce, the must-attend cocktail party for sales professionals -- share prospecting strategies, qualification techniques, and social-networking best practices.

After visiting www.InsideView.com/SmartAgent and completing your first mission, come visit the Smart Agents' not-so-secret Dreamforce HQ at the InsideView Booth (#915). There you can pick up your InsideView Smart Agent Passport, which gives you the opportunity to complete more Smart Agent Missions and earn additional chances to win the grand prize, all while learning how to access Sales Intelligence within your CRM to increase sales productivity -- and the adoption of Salesforce.com.

To further reward the most intrepid Smart Agents at Dreamforce, the first 50 people to come to the Dreamforce panel, "How to Tap into Social Media to Drive Sales Results," at 3:30pm PST on Wednesday, Nov. 18 at the Moscone Center's West Mezzanine area, will win an iPod shuffle from InsideView.

Concerns about security, downtime and latency, budgets, and general unfamiliarity with cloud technologies continue to create hesitation for many organizations that truly need to be developing a cloud strategy. Hybrid cloud solutions are helping to elevate those concerns by enabling the combination or orchestration of two or more platforms, including on-premise infrastructure, private clouds and/or third-party, public cloud services. This gives organizations more comfort to begin their digital transformation without a complete overhaul of their existing infrastructure - serving as a sort of "missing link" for transition to cloud utilization.
