What is Salesforce?
Salesforce.com is the enterprise cloud computing company that is leading the shift to the Social Enterprise. Their cloud platform and apps including the flagship CRM solution help employees collaborate easily and connect with customers. Founded in 1999, Salesforce.com is the enterprise cloud computing leader. UsingSalesforce.com’s social and mobile cloud technologies, companies can connect with customers, partners and employees in entirely new ways. Based onSalesforce.com‘s real-time, multitenant architecture, the company’s platform and apps give customers the tools to create a social front office and revolutionize the way they sell, service, market, collaborate, work, and innovate.
Salesforce.com groups its products into cloud suites, including Sales Cloud, Service Cloud, Data Cloud, Chatter Cloud, Force.com, RemedyForce and Heroku. Ironically, none of the Salesforce.com clouds are actually clouds (as traditionally understood in the cloud computing sense) but instead are SaaS (Software as aService) applications and PaaS (Platform as a Service) services.
Salesforce.com has a current market capital of 33 billion dollars. It is named as one of the World’s most innovative companies. There are approximately more than 100,000 customers executing one billion transactions daily on the Salesforce platform.
