About our Speakers
Marc Aubin, AppBuddy
Marc Aubin is Co-Founder of AppBuddy, creators of Salesforce apps that help increase Salesforce productivity, user adoption and data quality. He has been developing on the Force.com platform since 2007 through consulting companies such as Model Metrics, Appirio and Bluewolf, and is a former Force.com developer for Salesforce.com on their own "org 62" instance. He is a serial entrepreneur in the data management space and lover of working at start-ups, which means he is experienced at doing everything from sales and marketing to project management to operations to making a great cup of coffee.
Marc will be demoing GridBuddy, a Salesforce app that introduces the concept of editable reporting. GridBuddy provides the ability to create multi-object views with cross-object filters, and users can act on the data directly inline and within the context of a particular business process. The app was released on the AppExchange in November 2010.
Patrick White, Synata
Patrick is a developer and product manager by training, but an entrepreneur at heart. He has worked at numerous startups, and founded several himself. Most notably, he was a Group Product Manager for Fortify Software, and was responsible for products that won such awards as the SCMag Reader’s Trust Award, the Jolt Product Excellence Award, and the Tester’s Choice Award. Patrick is currently the CEO of Synata, the world's first enterprise cloud search engine, and holds a BS in Computer Engineering from the University of Southern California.
Synata is the world's first Enterprise Cloud Search Engine - in under 60 seconds, you can sign up, connect your cloud services, and have an extremely powerful search engine running across Salesforce, Zendesk, Google Apps, and many other cloud services. We're currently looking for Salesforce users to test the service and give feedback.
