Salesforce Platform is unified, future-ready, and connected with robust APIs and services so you can integrate back-office data systems, build communities, and more.

Connect and access data from other Salesforce orgs and external sources with point-and-click simplicity. Incorporate data from other departments on Salesforce or legacy systems (SAP, Oracle, Microsoft — you name it) in real time as Salesforce objects. Dramatically reduce integration time to unlock and modernise back-office systems.
Salesforce offers a rich library of programmatic and declarative integration tools to implement business logic spanning multiple application systems.

Use data from any external data source in real time with any application you create on Salesforce Platform. Instead of spending months integrating legacy systems, you can easily connect and access data to incorporate that data into any application.

Easily sync data between your Heroku customer apps and your Lightning employee apps. Loyalty apps, buying experience apps, marketing campaign apps, and internet of things apps are among the many use cases where Heroku Connect delivers the customer experience you want, with all of the data going back to your employee-facing applications.

Build end-to-end solutions that integrate multiple back-end systems and applications. Salesforce offers a rich library of programmatic and declarative integration tools that let you implement business logic that spans multiple application systems.

Our powerful workflow engine also offers an Outbound Messaging feature that allows customers to develop end-to-end business processes that span multiple applications, all using a point-and-click declarative interface.


Present a unified and integrated user experience to customers, partners, and employees, even if users are interacting with multiple web applications built in different languages. Using our Canvas technology, any external web application can be surfaced inside our desktop interface or the Salesforce1 Mobile App to provide a seamless user experience to end users. No more rip and replace — it's about reuse and integrate.

If you’re building your app with Heroku, there’s no need for developers to reinvent the wheel and architect their app from scratch. Heroku add-ons are third-party, specialised Salesforce Success Cloud that can be easily attached to a Heroku application to extend its functionality and speed the development cycle.

Building apps is only one part of Salesforce Platform. You can also get pre-integrated apps on the Salesforce AppExchange. With free apps to get you started or full-blown, enterprise-grade apps, you’ll find solutions for every department and industry. And with millions of installs and reviews from other customers, you can find the app that matches your business needs the best.


Designed API-first, Salesforce Platform lets you build more innovative apps, faster. Data-level APIs allow for integration with third-party and back-office systems. Additional APIs for UI templates, customer data, system metadata, and more allow you to deliver connected apps.

Our APIs let you connect to multiple platforms so you can unlock your back office (SAP, Oracle, and others), as well as connect to data from anything, like other applications, products, devices, and even wearable technology.
