Are you feet hurting yet? That’s how you know it’s the end of day two at Dreamforce ‘19...hope you saved enough energy for Dreamfest tonight!

Let's start with the end of the day: A major shark attack crisis was averted during the Admin Apps Demo Jam. In less than three minutes, the OwnBackup team was able to compare, restore, and save a life. Tune in tomorrow as we compete in the Mega Demo Jam.

Next, we joined Mike Mihnovich, Business Analyst at Adecco USA, for his 7 Lessons Adecco USA Learned During their Lightning Transition session.
