Salesforce Platform

About Salesforce Platform

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).

Flexible development platform on the cloud

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 queries.

Pros

Force.com 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. These tools allow business users to build apps on the platform with fairly complex logic. For additional functionality, developers are needed. Developers can build more advanced features using Apex, Visualforce and Lightning Communities.

Trailhead and developer account are free resources available to build expertise on the product.

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

Cons

Like any complex software there is a steep learning curve. Hiring developers in the US on the platform can be expensive. The license pricing may also be expensive for small businesses.

Salesforce as a User

Reviewed on 2024/02/08

Works well, but not as user friendly as I would like.

Works well, but not as user friendly as I would like.

Pros

There is a lot of data that you can get access to within the salesforce platform, and the customization works well for integration

Cons

As a user who is not in there every day, the new lightening platform is awkward and difficult to find anything. We often have to change the view to the old view to find anything and that should not be the case.

My experience with Salesforce across the last 4 years has been pretty positive. I love the fact that each of the elements within the platform are connected to each other, and hence extendability and modularity of the platform is possible. I absolutely feel that the privacy features and user roles for Salesforce is a pretty good implementation.

Pros

I love the extendability of Salesforce with their modules. It is high on security, it is high on privacy, and there is a module available for pretty much anything that you can think about. Right from basic CRM to collaboration tools to development interfaces to deployment management to publishing is well

Cons

I think the UI for Salesforce requires a much needed revamp. There has been a good effort with the "Lightning" interface for Salesforce, however given the nature of the platform it becomes tedious for users to keep entering information at every step of the time, and their work flow management is not as straight forward to set up. However once it is set up they are they work exactly as decide

I've used SF for over 10 years at multiple companies. I have found it to be a valuable tool when properly configured and a great way to keep customer data at everyone's fingertips across the organization.

Pros

SF gives the ability to keep all of your data at your fingertips to track and manage the customer lifecycle easily.

Cons

SF is complicated to configure - it could be easier and more user friendly to quickly and easily configure features and establish an easy to use account page with a depth of features for sales and account management.
