SAN FRANCISCO — March 6, 2006 — Salesforce.com [NYSE: CRM], the technology and market leader in on-demand customer relationship management (CRM), today announced Unlimited Edition, a new level of innovation and service that enables customers to extend on-demand success across the entire enterprise.
Unlimited Edition gives customers the capability to run their entire enterprise on The Business Web, including support for an unlimited number of custom-developed or third party applications deployed via the AppExchange, greatly enhanced storage and customization capabilities, premium support and administration, all the features and capabilities of Enterprise Edition, and the Salesforce Sandbox, which provides a fully replicated production environment of a company's Salesforce deployment for secure development, testing and training purposes.
"Unlimited Edition was developed in response to our customers' rapid expansion of their Salesforce deployments across the entire enterprise, through the adoption and deployment of applications from the AppExchange," said Marc Benioff, Chairman and CEO, salesforce.com. "This is a fulfillment of our vision of The Business Web, enabling companies of any size to manage, organize and share all of their business information on demand."
Unlimited Edition provides a complete environment for the deployment of additional business applications from the salesforce.com AppExchange, the world's first on-demand platform. With the AppExchange, any salesforce.com customer can access a broad network of services, applications, productivity tools, and components—encompassing everything from CRM-related solutions to applications for finance and human resources to industry—specific solutions—all created by the salesforce.com community of customers, developers, and partners. Unlimited Edition enables companies to go well beyond CRM and deliver all their business processes and systems on demand, eliminating the cost and burden of traditional custom-built on-premise applications.
The combination of Unlimited Edition and the AppExchange provide customers and developers with a common data model, user interface and security model, all of which streamline application development, integration, deployment and implementation.
