Dublin, Thursday, 8th July 2010: Salesforce.com, the enterprise cloud computing company, which employs over 200 people in Dublin, is today celebrating its ten year anniversary in Ireland.
Salesforce.com was founded with a bold vision for The End of Software. Today, the company’s cloud computing model has enabled new levels of success for more than 2 million net paying subscribers at 77,300 companies around the world, and spurred a new industry of cloud computing providers.
The next phase in its Cloud Computing model is being driven from the changes that are driving the consumer web. The impact of Social Networking and Collaboration, New Mobile Devices like the iPad, and the drive for real-time information are changing business expectations, the same way they have changed consumer ones.
Dr Steve Garnett, chairman, EMEA, salesforce.com said, “Ireland has played a key role in the success of salesforce.com over the past decade. We are delighted to celebrate the tenth anniversary of our offices in Dublin. We believe the skill levels, flexibility and commitment of our Irish employees has been key to our success and Ireland continues to be a highly attractive location for high tech industries.”
He added, “Companies are looking to maximise business benefit rapidly. The salesforce.com cloud computing model offers companies low up-front investment and the flexibility to scale up or down as business needs dictate all without the upfront capital expenditure and delay required with traditional software and client server computing.”
