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]

​Rutland (/ˈrʌtlənd/) is a landlocked county in the East Midlands of England, bounded to the west and north by Leicestershire, to the northeast by Lincolnshire and the southeast by Northamptonshire.

Its greatest length north to south is only 18 miles (29 km) and its greatest breadth east to west is 17 miles (27 km). It is the smallest historic county in England and the fourth smallest in the UK as a whole. Because of this, the Latin motto Multum in Parvo or "much in little" was adopted by the county council in 1950.[2] It has the smallest population of any normal unitary authority in England. Among the current ceremonial counties, the Isle of Wight, City of London and City of Bristol are smaller in area. The former County of London, in existence 1889 to 1965, also had a smaller area. It is 323rd of the 326 districts in population.

The only towns in Rutland are Oakham, the county town, and Uppingham. At the centre of the county is Rutland Water, a large artificial reservoir that is an important nature reserve serving as an overwintering site for wildfowl and a breeding site for ospreys.

Rutland's older cottages are built from limestone or ironstone and many have roofs of Collyweston stone slate or thatch.
