Two prominent cloud vendors, Salesforce and Amazon Web Services (AWS), held separate virtual events on Wednesday. Salesforce hosted its annual Connections conference while AWS dove into artificial intelligence with its Machine Learning Summit.

Salesforce announced some changes across its Digital 360 portfolio. Overall, Salesforce is continuing its push to help users move to digital-first models, and connect with customers through email and online transactions.
