Lightning Connect & External Data Integrations

Nashville, TN Developers Group

About this Meeting

Salesforce is a great platform for breaking silos of data and improving collaboration within a company. However, there are times when not all of your company's data resides in Salesforce and is still siloed, such as data in an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, HR systems, ordering systems, etc.

The traditional approach to solve this problem has been to copy the data into Salesforce with data loaders or ETL tools, which can be redundant and inefficient.

Fear not! There are new and exciting ways to enable your users to view and search records stored outside of Salesforce.

Join us as guest speakers Greg Stasko of Progress Software, and Paul Cleckner and John Nelson from Skuid demo how they are leveraging Lightning Connect and web services to provide real-time access to external data to their users!

This is not a "sales pitch" event but will be a fun and educational meetup for Developers and Administrators looking to solve real-time integration with Salesforce.
