TrailheaDX 2018 – Helping Trailblazers on #JourneytoCTA

Manish Baberwal

The 3rd edition of the Salesforce annual developer conference TrailheaDX 2018 in San Francisco from March 28-29 offered everything that you can expect from a Salesforce event – great sessions, exciting product launches and lot of swag. This year though was different in many ways from the past editions – primarily because Salesforce did what they do best – take feedback and action it.

Lunch and Learn with Megan Petersen

Arxxus Technology Partners

For our last lunch and learn session of 2017 we were lucky enough to have Trailhead Senior Marketing Manager and APAC Evangelist Megan Petersen come to speak to us. We were even luckier to have her turn up in full Ranger costume. With so many of our employees being incredibly active members of the Trailblazer community (boasting an impressive 335 certifications and more than a few thousand badges company wide), there was no shortage of enthusiasm for the topic at hand.

Transformation in Financial Services on Salesforce post Dreamforce and Beyond..

Jan Zycki

As someone who has worked with Salesforce in Financial Services for over a decade it’s very exciting for me to see this vertical now be so key to Salesforce and it’s partners.

At Dreamforce last month I was really excited by how developed and core the Salesforce offering now is for financial services around the world. Once it may have been used simply for running sales operations for one specific area with a custom build (usually coded) for industry specific processes. Now it is a core system enabling digital transformation in rapidly changing landscapes globally with many of the needs of FS clients out of the box.

I attended a session with Barclays Investment Banking and Global Markets and Tier1. Partners are a key part of the Salesforce Financial Service strategy and it was great to see Tier1 showcasing their vision.

Another partner blazing a trail is nCino with their Bank Operating System built out natively on the Salesforce Platform and now core to the Financial Services Cloud for Retail Banking. The nCino platform truly revolutionises how lenders at all levels can scale up without the investment required for traditional loan origination technology. Being built on the Salesforce platform also enables smaller regional lenders to extend their reach beyond their traditional geographic boundaries through digital engagement.

At Arxxus we are also proud of our AppExchange solution Platform Insights providing consolidated analytics of Master funds, Super funds and Wrap data on the Salesforce platform for many Australian financial services companies.

Back home in Sydney last week Salesforce held a Financial Services breakfast, again a watershed moment for the place of Financial Services as a true vertical focus. Stuart Ward, Director, Industry Strategy - Financial Services highlighted the upcoming Royal Commission and other reviews that will lead to dramatic changes across the industry. Smaller players are already entering the market offering alternatives and this will increase with customers gaining greater control over their banking data.

Financial services organisations will need to adapt to this new landscape and counter perceived lack of trust in society which will be fueled by the Royal Commission. Focus on corporate memory was a key theme from Stuart, knowing who I am and what I need throughout my life-cycle journey leveraging predictive analytics. Underpinning this will be good governance and technology.

At Dreamforce I was also really excited about a couple of announcements. With myLightning banks, advisers and brokers have the ability to rapidly develop branded UIs and apps. This will deliver a greater user/client experience significantly quicker and at a lower cost than ever before. The launch of myTrailHead is of great interest to organisations looking for better ways to train their staff and keep them compliant in a highly regulated and changing environment. Trailhead has already proved transformational in the Salesforce world. The ability to use that in your own organisation where people can work in and train on the same platform delivers greater context, ROI and connection to compliance and operational initiatives.

In short I think 2018 is shaping up to be a year of challenges but of course great opportunities across Financial Services in Australia and beyond. Salesforce as a platform is a foundation to keeping your business agile and responsive to the changing landscape. I would love to chat to you about how Arxxus can be your innovation-led transformation partner on this exciting and continuing journey.

The Dreamforce experience and why we’re excited about the year ahead.

Paulette Hogan

It was incredible to connect with the Salesforce community at Dreamforce this year, and hear how companies worldwide are using the platform to transform business. With discussions around the Fourth Industrial Revolution, artificial intelligence (AI) and the future of work, it was easy to be inspired. The fruits of disruption across industries like media and finance are apparent already, and yet we’re just starting to scratch the surface of what’s possible with data and technologies like AI.

The Arxxus Flywheel

Natesh Vedgiri

I have always admired the Flywheel concept and have been impressed about how a giant flywheel moves inch by inch gaining momentum turn by turn, finally propelling into an unstoppable momentum. This year, the Arxxus juggernaut, by virtue of the collective efforts of our teams, is on the cusp of achieving that unstoppable momentum.

We had a fantastic offsite at Sydney – Sheraton on the Park with 30-member strong Australia team. Picking up the threads from our various discussions at Sydney and India, we had an amazing V2MOM session leading to our Vision statement for 2017-2018 – “Be your Innovation Partner for Transformation”. Empowered by this vision the team is all set to partner with businesses in their innovation led transformation journey.

 The talent pool and rich diversity at Arxxus across our 5 locations in APAC has enabled us to become a key Salesforce SI partner in the ANZ region and the growing India market. With a significant presence on AppExchange, we are also gaining prominence as a Salesforce ISV. Our flagship ISV product – FieldKo has gained foothold in ANZ, India, South Africa markets and on the back of our innovation frameworks and enduring success with our clients, we continue to build brand across new verticals and territories.

 Innovation has been in our DNA since our inception. Our world class highly certified teams are passionately accelerating Enterprise Digital Transformation for our customers. With a strong pipeline and the addition of Enterprise Consulting Talent we have the confidence in continuing strong sales growth. Through our alliances initiatives, we are extending reach in Marketing Cloud, transformation management, Enterprise search and deepening expertise in Financial offerings.

Our team is motivated and aligned towards our goal of becoming the leading Salesforce partner in APAC. We are determined to drive our innovation led growth model backed by a world class leadership and services team. Our excellent team culture is supporting our rapid growth.

 This year we also crossed the magical number of 100 employees across our locations. It’s a great milestone and a strong reflection of the momentum the company has built. This event marks not just a milestone but is also the spring board for our future growth and success. A big thank you: to our shareholders, for supporting us and being with us through this journey; our team, for all your commitment, passion and hard work; our customers, for placing your trust in us; and our partners and collaborators, for helping us go from strength to strength.

Looking forward to achieving the unstoppable momentum!
