  • How to Protect Personal, Corporate Information When You Travel

    Before flying from Rome to Philadelphia earlier this summer, I stopped in the hotel lobby to print my boarding pass. The hotel had one computer dedicated solely to this task.

  • CRM backups or audit trails? Yes, please

    Like nearly any transactional system, usable CRM data backups are tricky because the data is always changing and dependent on coherency across several tables. Ideally, you'd fully quiesce the system and do a full backup every day, or enable the online backup. But with modern cloud systems and 7x24 customer access (via portals or mobile apps), you can't take the system down, and cloud vendors like SFDC don't provide a full backup more often than once a week. The situation with audit trails is different: they may reliably capture all the changes, but you may only be allowed to track a limited number of fields (the default in SFDC is 20 per object).
