Benioff will be interviewed by Victoria Barret of Forbes in a fireside chat on how cloud, social and mobile trends are changing the workplace.

Since becoming generally available six months ago, more than 60,000 companies have deployed Salesforce Chatter. The breakthrough technology has allowed to expand beyond sales organizations, and bring a new wave of collaboration to employees across the enterprise. Companies like Dell and Reed Exhibition have already rolled out Chatter enterprise-wide.

Chatter is the industry’s first enterprise social collaboration app and platform. Leveraging the social features popularized by Facebook and Twitter -- such as profiles, status updates and real-time feeds -- Chatter lets employees “follow” documents, people, business processes and application data. The result is a new level of productivity that crosses departments and organizational barriers.

Net:Work 2010 will assemble GigaOm editors and research analysts, top business leaders and technology companies, such as Amazon, Cisco, Google and Skype, to explore the challenges and opportunities presented by a new culture of work. The event will look at key tools and technologies that make collaborating easy.
