As one of the biggest cloud computing platforms, Salesforce has completely changed the way organizations do business by introducing a highly adaptable, customized and easy–to–use platform for end–to–end implementation services, i.e. Force.com. Using Force.com, developers can quickly create and deploy trusted cloud applications that are compact, secure, and accessible without worrying about provisioning hardware or application stacks. Moreover, this platform provides separate tools for defining the data model, the business logic, and the user interface.
