"We are seeing phenomenal success in Germany and we are partnering with our customers, partners and industry experts to become even more customer centric," said Joachim Schreiner, Senior Vice President of Salesforce Germany. "Many of our customers and partners like Volkswagen and Accenture are market leaders and at the forefront of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, leveraging new technologies such as cloud, social, IoT and Artificial Intelligence to transform how they connect with their customers. This industry shift is a challenge for all of us - for companies but also for us as human beings. Only if we do it right we will use technology to make the world a better place."
