It’s nearly 2019 — that means saying goodbye to outdated 2018 trends (sorry cold-shoulder tops!) and hello from your memoji for the new year. At work, it’s about modernizing disparate back-office systems and bringing together data in external ERP, supply chain, HR, or on-premises software. The Salesforce Platform uses open APIs based on industry standards like REST and SOAP, so it’s easy to integrate Salesforce with external endpoints, such as apps or enterprise integration hub.
The AppExchange has over 160 low-to-no-code integration solutions, enabling you to connect through standard data protocols. But don’t just take my word for it. With that much inventory, we looked to our customers to tell us which apps they preferred (and why). You can find it all in our handy AppExchange guide for integration apps. Here are some of the highlights:
