What is Salesforce IoT and why is it important?
IoT, short for Internet of Things, is a term coined to describe various devices connected to the Internet. IoT includes smart security systems, thermostats, construction and manufacturing equipment, medical equipment, robotics, and countless other connected devices. Salesforce IoT is about bringing the power of the Salesforce platform to some of these devices.
It’s designed to help organizations quickly develop and deploy IoT Applications that capture and process data relevant to your organization. Real-time rules can trigger interactions that help improve your customer experiences across all connected products, which are constantly evolving and improving. As workforces become increasingly remote, your company’s ability to adapt to these changes and become more mobile will ensure that productivity doesn’t suffer. Flexibility means happier employees which means happier clients.
