If you're feeling the air getting a little chilly (or, as is the case in South Florida where SkyPlanner performs our Salesforce consulting magic, the air getting a little less hot) then you know that it's time for a major update to the Salesforce platform. Salesforce.com, the world's #1 CRM company, is rolling out its Winter '15 release and the product improvements the release brings with it.
