We’re a diverse bunch at Improved Apps and we enjoy sharing a story or two… our news… and views… over a cup of coffee or around the water cooler (and an occasional beer!)

So, we thought why not share a few of our newly discovered noteworthy news stories, fascinating facts, helpful hints, as well as the things that have made us smile or simply laugh out loud.

As our apps support the entire gamut of Salesforce users from sys admins to sales reps; from marketing managers to business analysts and from trainers to support staff, (and bearing in mind we’re all human), we hope that there is something of interest to everyone.

Happy reading!

We are using color pictures with 10 times more resolution than it was available for the public so far. The project will classify and calibrate them for science research purposes. Help us!!!

What you measure usually gets paid attention to, and what you pay attention to, usually gets better. [read more]

Where’s my data?… Good question!

This article published earlier in the month raises some crucial question as we move increasingly away from on-premiss to cloud: We used to be able to see and touch the things we had bought but now?… Do you really “own” something if the supplier can flick a switch to permanently disable it?… What’s to stop companies from doing this to other products once their warranties have expired?

Make sure you know where your data is and that you can get hold of it easily if you or your supplier have a change of mind.
