The Future of Salesforce.com
The appointment of JP Rangaswami as Salesforce.coms first chief scientist.
The appointment of JP Rangaswami as Salesforce.coms first chief scientist is an interesting move. As reported on ZD Net, Rangaswami is highly regarded as something of a visionary among CIOs and will be a huge asset in taking the companys message out into the European market.
"I first encountered Rangaswami at a meeting in London back in 2005, some months before he left his former role at German banking giant Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein to become chief scientist at BT. I blogged then about his views on how enterprise applications would evolve. Those views have remained remarkably consistent and are replicated in the press release announcing his appointment to Salesforce.com."
