Enterprise application development integration made much easier
Enterprise application development with traditional software has always been too complex, too slow, and too expensive. A new model called cloud computing has emerged over the last decade to address these problems. Applications that run in the cloud are delivered as a service so companies don’t have to buy and maintain hardware and software to run them—or huge IT teams to manage and maintain complicated deployments. Salesforce.com pioneered cloud computing with our comprehensive CRM application suite. With salesforce.com’s Force.com cloud platform, you can build any business application and run it on our servers. Learn more
Native connectors to popular applications
A comprehensive array of technologies built on top of the Force.com API dramatically simplifies enterprise application integration. Whether you need to connect to SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, or another on-premises or cloud-based application, integration now takes much less effort than ever before. Force.com lets you integrate to literally anything—free of system incompatibilities, technical roadblocks, and the restrictions of vendor lock-in. Force.com lets you unlock data trapped in your back office with Force.com.
Connect with Amazon S3 and EC2
You can easily integrate Force.com and Amazon Web Services (AWS) with the Force.com for Amazon Web Services toolkit. Blending native access to the AWS Simple Storage System with Amazon Machine Images (AMI) and an authentication framework, the toolkit makes these Amazon services directly available to Force.com. You can access and manipulate S3 objects within the Java-like Force.com code (Apex). You can then launch application integration with EC2.
