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.

I will say that my first contact was a little bit complicated, you need to really take your time to understand how to use it and to understand what you can do with it, with time you will see the power of the platform and that it can be usefull for a lot of people in your company.

Pros

I really like the App Exchange of Salesforce, there is a lot of applications that can help to go faster to deploy your Salesforce.

Cons

It's a toolbox so there is a lot of things that's you need to develop by yourself or with the help of a partner

Very Expensive Customizable Software

Reviewed on 2022/06/09

Pros

No coding needed for quick and easy business modifications. Highly customizable and multi use.

Cons

Licenses are considerably expensive. Extremely expensive if you’re hiring an admin, developer, or development company to manage the software.

its great, it provides a perfect solution to our business needs, it solves the problems we had with previous systems and it allows our business to grow as we plan it

Pros

the endless possibilities it has, the business flexibility, the reporting abilities, the option to create different views with different fields for different types of users

Cons

it is not a self catered platform, it very complex to manage it and you should hire a Salesforce admin for it, unlike our previous system where it was very simple
