Anyone interested in new technology?
SALESFORCE CAME FROM BEHIND
I recently got into Salesforce, a popular CRM but totally in cloud since 1999. I remember attending their conference in 2011 and hearing how unique and useful the entire cloud idea was but I did not quite pick on it. It caught on rapidly and businesses started implementing it since. I have been hearing about a Salesforce implementation everywhere I went and am going.
Today, Salesforce beats SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, Adobe - Combined - in 2022 CRM Marketshare worldwide, its market cap is bigger than Oracle (from which they split) and SAP - the large companies since 1990s. I have worked with SAP and PeopleSoft systems for a long time and recently quickly understood the value of Salesforce.
EASE OF USE AND LOW CODING
I decided to play with it and found it to be super friendly, easy to use and saw their motto (Clicks, Not Code), in action during use. I loved using, configuring it. The future is going to code-free interfaces in all technology for the user. It also has tons of bells and whistles than come prepackaged and ready to use. Very little coding is required if at all.
COMPARE HOW TRADITIONAL IT BUILD WAS BUILT VS SALESFORCE
I made this comparison chart of how an IT dept of a business traditionally builds itself with big 11 steps vs. what Salesforce offers just in 2 steps. I have worked with businesses who are still struggling with buying servers and doing backups and disaster recovery troubles. None exists with Salesforce.
A GLIMPSE INTO WORK OF THE FUTURE
These are the types of systems and automations that will bring downtowns as we know, plantation-style work structures, 9 to 5 rut with multiple levels of hierarchy looking over your shoulders - down. Remote working, freedom in work and life balance, in choosing your hours, getting paid for delivery and not time are in. The hold of the Republicans and Chamber of Commerce on workforce so that the capital can exploit will loosen I hope.
LOOK AT THE INTERFACE SCREENS IN 1999 AND TODAY
Look at the sleek interface (lightening framework) vs. how they started in 1999.
Would love to have comments/feedback.
It's awesome to see your enthusiasm for new technology, especially Salesforce! Cloud-based solutions have indeed revolutionized the CRM market, and Salesforce's success story is impressive. Clicks, not code, sounds like a game-changer, making it easier for businesses to implement and customize their systems.
Your comparison chart highlights the benefits of using Salesforce, streamlining processes, and eliminating traditional IT complexities. It's fantastic to witness how technology like this can transform the workplace, promoting remote work and work-life balance.

I agree, if you are creating a brand new process from scratch, you don't need any external data interfaces, etc. Salesforce is very easy to configure.
But if you have existing processes using another platform, let's says Oracle Service Cloud, it's not so easy to transition.
Or if you have processes on two different platforms, that interface with each other, and they have interfaces with other data systems, plus workflow, and more; let's just say it is extremely complicated. I have been working on a project since March 2020, to move these processes to the Salesforce platform, additionally working with Throughline on wireframing, bringing in SKUID for application development in conjunction with Salesforce, and so on.
