The pressure that businesses today are under to reduce costs, improve agility, and deliver better results is no joke. Couple that with rapidly evolving technology and competition for developers, and you can get a sense of the dramatic shift IT leaders and CIOs are experiencing in their roles. IT leaders are no longer solely focused on maintaining infrastructure and keeping the lights on, but are looking for new ways to help the business drive innovation — fast and at lower costs.
IDC, the premier global market intelligence firm, recently conducted a study of Salesforce customers that shows that businesses who are driving innovation with Salesforce App Cloud are achieving 478% five-year ROI, releasing new apps in 59% less time, and increasing revenues an average of $55,000 per 100 users, letting them break even in just seven months.
