Salesforce will unveil its new Salesforce1 platform on Tuesday at the company’s Dreamforce conference to be held in San Francisco.
The new platform has been developed with the aim to future-proof company’s applications leading to much stronger customer relationships with the Internet of things and wearable computing. The company has confirmed that Salesforce1 is a complete rebranding of the same technology which the company offers to its customers and partners through its Force.com development platform.
The new platform will offer 10 times more APIs (application programming interfaces) and will also offer new components for building user interfaces, confirmed Michael Peachey, senior director of solutions marketing.
Salesforce1 will feature a new mobile application which will allow customers to use Salesforce.com’s applications, which either are custom-built or have been purchased from partners through the Salesforce.com AppExchange, said Peachey.
Salesforce1 also includes a new mobile application especially developed for administrators which will allow them to reset passwords, deactivate users and receive information about scheduled maintenance from Salesforce.com.
All the current Salesforce.com customers will get automatically upgraded to the new platform. Marc Benioff, Salesforce CEO, is expected to outline more on Salesforce1 at Dreamforce on Tuesday.
