…their product or service. They may not use any type of Customer Relationship Management ( CRM) program such as Salesforce or Siebel, or if they do, they don't maintain it. When I found myself in this situation I reached out to project managers, sales reps and the finance department (to find out who paid for the product or service). You could also reach out to IT to see if they have analytics on users. If your company has a blog or a newsletter you could check out the subscribers.

…he says. " Salesforce, meanwhile, is known for being the world's premiere CRM solution, but also happens to be built on top of a development platform, handling billions of requests every day." He says there's a huge opportunity to bring the agility and flexibility of Heroku to the Salesforce platform.

Mattt is working with the community to produce a set of first-party libraries for languages such as Ruby, Node.js, and Objective-C, which developers can use to …

One of my businesses uses Highrise as its CRM tool to document all of its sales activities.

As Highrise is a hosted application, I want to make sure that we have access to regular backups of our data. Luckily, Highrise offers a handy export feature for this purpose. Unfortunately, those exports do take a sweet while to generate.

I generate weekly backups using this method and usually trigger their creation when I leave the office on Fridays. When the export is done, Highrise…

…the user is able to share data between business apps (e.g. copy and paste text from an email into a CRM record), but corporate IT would of course not want data inside the container copy-and-pasted onto a non-container app such as Twitter or Facebook — i.e. data leak prevention. And of course corporate IT should have the ability to wipe the container if the device is lost or the employee leaves the organization, but not delete music, photos, personal apps, etc. that the employee put on the …

…traditional on-premise solutions have been gaining market share. Salesforce.com led the way in CRM, and SaaS solutions are becoming more common in other markets including Application Performance Management ( APM). This is no surprise, as companies look to lower costs, reduce the burden on IT staff, gain speed and agility, and move to a subscription model where you pay for what you use when you use it and not before any value is delivered.

You can break out the numbers in your own CRM to see this: your likelihood of getting an order from a prospect goes down sharply the longer they've been in the CRM, largely because the "lead gets cold." (Indeed, in a lot of fields you can lose up to 90% of the predicted value of the lead within the hour. Crikey.) Software businesses will see a similar effect in their own sales: for example, Bingo Card Creator trials (which are not time-limited) will lose 90% of their …

5. Unobtrusive feedback with tracking scripts

All the techniques above involve additional interaction from the user, but of course you can learn a lot simply by observing how users naturally use your application.
