Custom designed systems are expensive to build and even more expensive to maintain. Eventually, the system becomes a hindrance or worse – obsolete. Not only is it expensive, it is counterproductive to moving your business forward. At that time, business leaders and decision makers are faced with a difficult decision – whether to upgrade the existing system or implement a new one.
Salesforce is the Answer
This is a problem repeated in thousands of businesses across the world every day. The custom systems of the past may have been suitable at the time for that individual business. However, we live in an interconnected world today where scalability, flexibility and future-proofing is vital to business development. You need something that can do more than the limited range of resource-intense custom systems. Salesforce is one such platform.
Salesforce is Cloud Based
The Cloud was once disruptive technology and one only for certain businesses. That is no longer the case. Everybody – from the freelancer up to the multinational uses Cloud technology. It helps your employees get more done, and to work smarter and more efficiently. Business meetings are no longer an exercise in chasing people up for files. With Cloud connectivity, it’s right there at the time you need it. Naturally, Salesforce works with every platform for which you might presently use a custom system.
Salesforce Connect… Connects
One of the reasons most businesses resist moving away from legacy systems to Salesforce is the perception that it is complicated, expensive and disruptive with potential for years of integrating issues. This is not true. Salesforce has been designed with the most popular and common legacy systems in mind including SAP, Windows, Oracle and even some much older systems. Salesforce Connect makes the process simple and straightforward. There are no enormous updates with extended downtime. Your IT team should be able to integrate Salesforce in real time, quickly and easily, with only minimal disruption to your working day.
Salesforce Does Data Integration
Your legacy systems integrate with Salesforce, but what about your data? You might have several decades of data to integrate, and you’re probably concerned about losing it, or vast swathes being incompatible. As well as integrating your legacy systems, Salesforce permits you to import your data for a smooth transition. Salesforce supports most files supported by SAP, Oracle and Windows. Any applications that you integrate into your system in the app cloud should be able to access existing data.
Salesforce and Business Logic Integration
Data and platform integration are just two parts of what Salesforce can provide. Ultimately, you need your business logic to work in synch with these other two elements. What is business logic and how does it benefit you? Simply, it is the process of building an end-to-end solution that works for everybody in the way that the users want it to work. Often, the problem with integrating disparate systems into one is an endless stream of bugs and problems with compatibility. That does not happen with Salesforce, a system designed for full compatibility.
