Salesforce App Cloud overview

Salesforce App Cloud lets users build enterprise apps quickly that help connect employees, engage customers, track performance, and integrate everything. App Cloud is a single, unified ecosystem of tools and services including Force, Heroku Enterprise, and Lightning that adds up to the fastest, easiest way to take the lead in the app revolution. Even build Android apps and iOS apps.

Salesforce App Cloud offers an extensive feature set out of the box, which allows lines of business to develop enterprise apps without writing code. Visual tools allow administrators to build applications, create triggers and workflows, and manage the data architecture with a fully drag-and-drop interface. Best of all, applications built with Salesforce App Cloud are built once but run everywhere--on desktops, mobile phones, tablets, and even wearable devices. For custom solutions, Salesforce App Cloud allows developers to write code in any modern language, such as Node.js, PHP, Ruby, or Python (to name a few).

Great Product, Questionable Updates and Prioritization of Features

Ohana. Get used to it."Accidental Admin" is a concept that Salesforce uses to emphasize how anyone can pick up and learn to configure Salesforce as an admin. The configuration style (clicks, not code) leads to a low skill floor needed to start using Salesforce. Advanced users, developers, etc. have the flexibility to customize the system to a high degree as well.

I enjoy working on the platform because you can really make it do what you want it to do with the right plug-in apps or with a decent developer on staff who can add customizations with the back-end functionality to go along with them. Salesforce is continually evolving, and new releases come out three times per year with new and improved features. Salesforce can be used for nearly any business model or business workflow. Just remember that when all is said and done, it is not a cheap solution for getting rid of that old, relational database legacy CRM system. You will ultimately end up paying for more than just licensing fees for your Salesforce users. The best thing about the platform is that it's flexible. It comes with a set of standard objects such as Accounts, Contacts, Cases, Contracts, Orders, and many others. It is very easy to add new objects that can be tailored for your business use case. Originally designed mainly as a Sales tool, Salesforce now has a Service Cloud, Marketing Cloud, Analytics, and other modules that can be added on easily to provide a full enterprise infrastructure. Adding automation to user tasks via workflow rules and process builder can be done without coding. Adding triggers via Apex Code is also fairly easy for developers, since Apex is an easy language to learn.

The Product is very powerful. It provides flexibility to build almost any kind of applications. Business users can build useful apps without taking help from developers. Extensive set of resources are available to build expertise on the platform. Also customers/partners are always available to answer to platform (Lightning) is very powerful development platform on the browser. It can be used to build applications for any industry. The pricing is on per user per month basis. Many tools like Validation rules, Workflows, process builder are available for business users.

Excellent community of customers/partners is available to support queries.

This program is extremely helpful for storing information, keeping track of clients, and using these tools to assist another co-worker if you are not familiar with a client's needs. It is also a great central access point with remote/field reps that may not have access to specific reports, files, data, etc.The search feature is good, it pulls everything associated with what you are looking for.

There's a saying that "nobody ever got fired for picking Salesforce" for a reason. It's an excellent, safe choice.Salesforce is the most robust CRM in the market, a point that isn't debatable in my view. For an enterprise organization with complex needs, Salesforce is hard to beat. The sheer number of native integrations is a huge advantage over any other solution. The reporting you get with Salesforce is remarkable.
