Gartner Positions Salesforce in the Leaders Quadrant of the 2017 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise High Productivity Application Platform-as-a-Service, Worldwide

May 02, 2017

Evaluation based on completeness of vision and ability to execute

SAN FRANCISCO, May 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Salesforce (NYSE: CRM), the world's #1 CRM company and Intelligent Customer Success Platform, today announced that Salesforce has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. for its App Cloud solution in the "Leaders" quadrant of the April 2017 Enterprise High Productivity Application Platform-as-a-Service (hpaPaas) report.

"Home to more than 5.5 million apps, the Salesforce Platform is helping businesses reinvent themselves and connect with their customers in a whole new way," said John Wookey, EVP of Platform at Salesforce. "With new Einstein features empowering developers of all skill levels to build AI-powered apps, App Cloud ranks among the most complete development platforms in the world for both citizen and professional developers."

Gartner's Magic Quadrants are based on rigorous analysis, backed up by highly structured methodologies. According to Gartner, "In the enterprise hpaPaaS market, leadership implies an understanding of the demands of the enterprise and the opportunities of cloud computing, and a genuine commitment to enterprise cloud computing. A Leader must have demonstrated a market-leading vision and the ability to deliver on that vision. It must provide the set of services required by the enterprise in a public cloud offering, yet enable use by non-3GL developers. In this developing market, only three vendors have sustained excellence in both execution and vision for long enough to demonstrate effective leadership, but with growing strategic levels of investment we expect multiple vendors to advance in this direction during the next three years."
