Happy Birthday, Salesforce.com. It’s been 15 years since salesforce.com was founded in 1999. Salesforce.com, with its tagline of “No Software” and the high energy, philanthropy-focused Marc Benioff, nearly single-handedly started the entire cloud computing industry. Since then, Salesforce has diversified into a provider of software for managing customer service, automating the marketing process, and monitoring social media. It also offers clean data on companies that salespeople can hit up and a Platform as a Service for building and deploying applications.
Today, we have a hyper-connected world. There is an increased demand on companies to respond and adapt in real-time to customers. In order to meet this demand companies need to provide customers with a better experience. Salesforce allows companies of all size become more agile and customer focused through the use of cloud, mobile, and social technologies. The “customer first” focus is at the center of the growth of Salesforce.com.
So, happy birthday, Salesforce.com. Here is to many more years. By the way, Salesforce.com celebrated across the world. Employees in 30+ cities celebrated with an day of giving back and having fun. To see pictures, click here.
