Today, Mindjet joins an sforce community of 3,000 developers, 750 enterprises and more than 100 ISVs who are using sforce to customize, integrate and extend salesforce.com to create custom CRM solutions. "MindManager for Salesforce.com allows us to present salesforce.com information in a manner that is both visually stimulating and readily digestible," said Simon Hill, SMS Management & Technology. "This ensures that our sales people can see the big picture for any project they are working on, as well as the intricate detail."

All solutions are built using open standards on the sforce on demand platform, one of the most widely used and broadly supported enterprise Web services.

Leveraging standards and technologies from the Service Oriented Architectures (SOA), sforce continues to demonstrate how the on demand platforms are a central part of the new enterprise IT strategies.
