SAN FRANCISCO, March 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Salesforce [NYSE: CRM], the Customer Success Platform and world's #1 CRM company, today announced that for the third consecutive year, Salesforce App Cloud has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Leaders" quadrant of the 2016 Enterprise Application Platform as a Service (aPaaS) report. With App Cloud, companies are building apps for any device and engaging with customers, employees and partners faster than ever before.
An aPaaS that is designed to support the enterprise style of applications and application projects (high availability, disaster recovery, security and technical support) is an enterprise aPaaS.
Gartner's Magic Quadrants are based on rigorous analysis, backed up by highly structured methodologies. According to Gartner, "In the enterprise aPaaS market, leadership implies an understanding of the demands of the enterprise and the opportunities of cloud computing, and a genuine commitment to enterprise cloud computing. A Leader must have demonstrated a market-leading vision and the ability to deliver on that vision. It must provide the set of services required by the enterprise in a public cloud offering. In this developing market, few vendors have sustained excellence in both execution and vision for long enough to demonstrate effective leadership, but with growing strategic levels of investment, we expect multiple vendors to advance in this direction during the next three years."
"Businesses are reinventing themselves to connect with customers in a whole new way, and apps are driving that transformation," said Adam Seligman, EVP and GM of App Cloud. "App Cloud empowers CIOs with everything they need to build apps fast, for any device, working with the data and skills they already have. We believe Salesforce's Magic Quadrant position reinforces our leadership and continued innovation."
