The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) can have major impacts on application development and present a compliance burden for IT. But apps are the lifeblood of modern business, and the ability to innovate and customise apps can provide critical competitiveness and differentiation.

Join our session to hear how GDPR can be transformed into an app innovation opportunity for your business and hear from Salesforce experts as they discuss;

  • Key principles of the GDPR that impact application development
  • The benefits of developing on the Salesforce Lightning Platform
  • GDPR-ready features of the Lightning Platform that can help organisations develop applications that accelerate their readiness for the GDPR

Time: 14:15 -14:45

It’s never been a more exciting time to be a marketer. Yet, the spotlight continues to shine on the marketing and advertising industry when it comes to privacy, the use of data and the trust between brands and their customers. GDPR is a significant milestone on the ‘trust’ journey, but it’s unlikely to be the last step in a journey that’s making marketers think again about the value they deliver to customers. Marketers who think about and act on GDPR as a opportunity to deliver better value are the the ones that will shine through. Attend this session to learn from marketers, privacy and GDPR experts, marketing industry specialists, and the Salesforce team about how you can thrive in the age of privacy, trust and GDPR.

Time: 15:30 – 15:50
