Last night, Silverline was thrilled to host a fantastic group of financial services thought leaders in NYC in partnership with Salesforce. We would like to extend a big thank you to those who came out for the dinner and discussion, as well as our fantastic panelists from KKR, Evercore, General Atlantic, and Stonebriar.
The panel was thoughtfully moderated by Andrew Brandman, SVP of Financial Services at Salesforce, and Chris Arrix, Salesforce’s GM of Corporate & Institutional Banking. Their questions honed in on how Investment Banks, Private Equity firms, and Capital Markets shops are approaching innovation, how these firms promote the adoption of new technology and tools, and the role of data to drive commercial decisions and growth.
This topic of conversation was especially timely, as the $15.7B Salesforce acquisition of Tableau was announced earlier this week. Business intelligence and analytics are top of mind for so many in the industry, and if the lively discussion last night is any indicator, there is great excitement for Salesforce’s vision to become the driving force behind the next generation of analytics platforms.
Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing insights from this event, as well as from next week’s Salesforce Connections conference in Chicago, and a similar upcoming forum in Los Angeles. Stay tuned for more, and thanks again to all those who came out last night!
