Forceworks Are you ready for the transition from Hardware-Centric to
Do you ever talk to an “Old” IT person? You know, like 40ish. Man,
do they have some stories about how IT used to be back in the day. Things
sure have changed a lot. You probably think to yourself “Man, they have no
idea how things are now”. How about a “Middle-Aged” IT person? You know
like 30ish. They have stories too, and things have changed a lot since then
as well. You may be thinking “That guy is really losing touch”.
It seems to come in waves… change that is. Well another wave is crashing
the beach, and if you are not paying attention, you too could soon be “that
guy” who has lost touch, maybe you feel you are already slipping.

they simply made a change to the search which orphaned his content… same
result. And now here we have Microsoft.

Forceworks Migrating away from Salesforce.com? Beware!
Salesforce.com is not a fan of customers who attempt to leave. I can’t
blame them, nobody likes to lose a customer. When you start to lose a lot of
