Salesforce has announced the next generation of Salesforce Platform — including a set of low-code development tools that empower everyone within an organization, regardless of technical skill or role, to create and ship apps on a single platform.
Salesforce Platform includes low-code tools for interactive app development and automation, as well as new elastic computing, AI-driven data protection, identity management and DevOps capabilities to help teams drive business outcomes fast. This gives anyone — including business users, admins, designers and developers — the ability to build apps and processes using low code, all while enabling the highest levels of IT governance, scale and trust.
Dynamic Interactions, an App Builder enhancement, uses low code to build apps with web components that communicate, exchange data, and react to user actions while Einstein Automate provides creators with low-code tools to build workflows that automate time-intensive tasks and seamlessly integrate data.
Salesforce is also delivering tools for people with more specialized skill sets, so that both low- and pro-code creators can collaborate and build on the Salesforce Platform. Salesforce Functions, for instance, lets organizations deploy code in a serverless environment so they can deliver scalable experiences by extending data and workflows they already have.
Also, CLI Unification gives creators a command line interface (CLI) for building anything on Salesforce.
DevOps Center is a centralized location for tracking and managing changes within Salesforce, allowing teams to collaborate while also using DevOps and governance best practices. The new Einstein Data Detect helps organizations adhere to data privacy laws by using AI and machine learning to discover and protect sensitive user data, like social security or credit card numbers.
Also new today, Customer Identity Plus enables developers to integrate consumer-grade identity capabilities for organizations with high numbers of monthly active users, to consolidate and manage customer identities.
