Vlocity Health Customers on Stage at Dreamforce 2018

Vlocity and Top Health Insurers Take the Stage at Dreamforce ’18 to Discuss Digital Transformation Pathways for Success. Executive Recap Below.

Dreamforce 2018 was the biggest event yet for the Health Insurance market moving to the cloud and particularly for Vlocity Health Industry Apps. Vlocity hosted a number of health insurance leaders on stage to share inspiring customer success stories that focused on “incremental and disruptive digital transformation” themes. 

What do we mean by “incremental and disruptive digital transformation?” 

Incremental digital transformation identifies the need for simple changes and having the tools to quickly make them. On the other hand, disruptive digital transformation changes complete business models and markets as fast as your customers demand and your competitors uncover.

We are excited to showcase Vlocity Health customer breakout sessions that highlight how they each have approached their digital transformation.
