Introducing the 2013 Salesforce.com Partner Innovation Award Winners
Last year at Dreamforce, we kicked off the inaugural salesforce.com Partner Innovation Awards to recognize the many ways that salesforce.com consulting partners are helping to drive customer company transformation among our joint customers. Today, we are thrilled once again to continue this recognition and announce the winners of our second annual salesforce.com Partner Innovation Awards!
