It’s a 3-Peat! Salesforce Named a Leader in Gartner’s aPaaS Magic Quadrant for the Third Year in a Row

For the third year in a row, Salesforce is a leader in Gartner’s Application Platform as a Service (aPaaS) Magic Quadrant!

Here’s why this is awesome:

  1. It proves that we’re a market leader when it comes to enterprise apps. Gartner, the authority on enterprise software and platforms, evaluated 16 aPaaS vendors, and named Salesforce a leader.
  2. It shows we’re about vision AND reality. Gartner places Salesforce highest in its ability to execute on its vision.
  3. It confirms what our customers already know: that we’re uniquely positioned to help them transform the customer experience.

So where does the magic come from? According to Adam Seligman, EVP App Cloud, it’s the transformation that App Cloud delivers across all business departments. “Companies are reinventing their businesses for the age of the customer, and apps are at the heart of it,” 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.”

App Cloud has everything organizations need to build, run, and optimize trusted apps that connect employees, engage customers, and connect data. Organizations can build productivity apps using model driven development on Force.com and create engaging pixel perfect elastic apps on Heroku, connecting the two in real-time with Heroku Connect. New in the last year, customers can now use the new drag-and-drop Lightning components, and enhanced security features like two-factor authentication, Salesforce Shield, and Platform Encryption with Force.com.  Also new in the last year, developers on Heroku now have access to in-memory support and Heroku Enterprise Private Spaces.

And, building apps with App Cloud means that you can rely on our broad ecosystem. The Salesforce ecosystem includes AppExchange with over 2,900 partner-built apps and Trailhead, a unique training community to where anyone can learn to build apps with App Cloud.
