Salesforce CRM

​Salesforce's products include several customer relationship management (CRM) technologies, including: Sales Cloud,[33] Service Cloud,[34] Marketing Cloud,[35] and Commerce Cloud and Platform.[35] Additional technologies include Slack, MuleSoft, Tableau Analytics, and Trailhead.

Main services

Salesforce's main technologies are tools for customer management. Other products enable customers to create apps, integrate data from other systems, visualize data, and offer training courses.[36]

Salesforce Platform

Salesforce Platform[37] (formerly known as Force.com) is a platform as a service (PaaS) that allows developers to create add-on applications that integrate into the main Salesforce.com application.[38][failed verification] These third-party applications are hosted on Salesforce.com's infrastructure.[39]

Force.com applications are built using declarative tools, backed by Lightning[further explanation needed] and Apex, a proprietary Java-like programming language for Force.com,[40] as well as Visualforce, a framework[41] including an XML[42] syntax typically used to generate HTML. The Force.com platform typically receives three complete releases a year.[43] As the platform is provided as a service to its developers, every single development instance also receives all these updates.

In 2015, a new framework for building user interfaces – Lightning Components – was introduced in beta.[44] Lightning components are built using the open-source Aura Framework[45] but with support for Apex as the server-side language instead of Aura's JavaScript dependency. This has been described as an alternative to, not necessarily a replacement for, Visualforce pages.[46]

As of 2014, the Force.com platform has 1.5 million registered developers.[47]

Lightning Base Components is the component library built on top of Lightning Web Components.[48]

AppExchange

Launched in 2005, the Salesforce AppExchange is an online application marketplace that connects customers with third-party applications and consulting services.[49][50] As of 2021, the exchange has over 5,000 apps listed.[51][52]

Trailhead

Launched in 2014, Trailhead is a free online learning platform with courses focused on Salesforce technologies.[53][54][15]

Salesforce+

In August 2021, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Salesforce launched a streaming service titled Salesforce+[b]. The service features original content produced by the company involving its clients ranging from "days in the life" of smaller business owners to interviews with large companies' CEOs. Since 2022, Salesforce has also streamed its annual Dreamforce conference on Salesforce+.[55][56]

​Great Yarmouth, often called Yarmouth, is a seaside resort and minster town in Norfolk, England, straddling the River Yare, some 20 miles (30 km) east of Norwich.[2] A population of 38,693 in the 2011 Census made it Norfolk's third most populous place. Its fishing industry, mainly for herring, fell steeply after the mid-20th century and has all but vanished.[3] North Sea oil from the 1960s brought an oil-rig supply industry that now services offshore natural gas rigs. More recent offshore wind power and other renewable energy have created further support services. Yarmouth has been a seaside resort since 1760 and a gateway from the Norfolk Broads to the North Sea. Tourism was boosted when a railway opened in 1844, which gave visitors easier, cheaper access and triggered some settlement. Wellington Pier opened in 1854 and Britannia Pier in 1858. Through the 20th century, Yarmouth was a booming resort, with a promenade, pubs, trams, fish-and-chip shops and theatres, and the Pleasure Beach, the Sea Life Centre, the Hippodrome Circus and the Time and Tide Museum, and a surviving Victorian seaside Winter Garden in cast iron and glass.
