Salesforce Announces 2021 Partner Innovation Award Winners

We describe the Salesforce partner ecosystem as helping customers grow faster and reach further. And the data backs us up. According to a new IDC study, Salesforce and our ecosystem is expected to create 9.3 million new jobs and $1.6 trillion in new business revenues globally by 2026. 

Today, we celebrate our partners’ overwhelming success with our ninth annual Salesforce Partner Innovation Awards, an honor showcasing the most noteworthy success stories across clouds, industries, and our partner program – including consulting firms, digital agencies, and ISV partners.
