SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Salesforce [NYSE: CRM], the global leader in CRM, today announced that Salesforce was named a leader by Forrester Research in its report The Forrester Wave™: Low-Code Development Platforms for AD&D Pros, Q4 2017. The report evaluated 13 vendors based on 26 criteria grouped into three categories: current offering, strategy and market presence.
Among the reviewed vendors, Salesforce received the highest score in the strategy category and the highest possible score in the market presence category. The report states that Salesforce's "low-code platform is closer to a unified developer experience now than it has been in many years. Why? Salesforce now includes its Sales and/or Service Cloud applications in its low-code platform, and it has finally integrated modern Lightning UX. Salesforce's cloud services are very mature and used at scale, and the vendor's AppExchange marketplace and Trailhead developer learning program set the standard for those services among low-code platform vendors."
"IT leaders count on developers to drive digital transformation throughout the business. Those developers need two things: powerful, easy-to-use application development tools and the training to use them efficiently," said John Wookey, EVP of Platform, Salesforce. "With the Salesforce Platform, we're empowering developers—including admins and business users—with low-code tools to build apps for any business need and Trailhead, Salesforce's gamified learning platform that provides free, guided learning paths for developers of all skill levels."
