Why On-Demand?

Because IT Should Be Strategic, Not Tactical

Organizations large and small are flocking to the on-demand model for business applications. On-demand is the antidote to many of the IT headaches associated with the traditional on-premise software model. With no software or hardware to buy, install, maintain, or upgrade, the popularity of on-demand grows with IT organizations that are increasingly asked to do more with less.

The model's instant time to value and platform independence is winning over even skeptical IT professionals, who worried about getting the security, customization, and integration capabilities required for a successful implementation. The on-demand model is making heroes out of IT by eliminating maintenance tasks and allowing business users to perform basic customization tasks, thus freeing IT to focus on innovation and creating true business value. That's why the future of software begins with on-demand.

Multitenant Platforms

The first iteration of "hosted" software was not a success because it was based on a single-tenant model—each company had its own, distinct instance of the software. Multitenant platforms are now succeeding where the hosted model failed.

Development as a Service

By eliminating many of the problems related to traditional application development, the on-demand model frees developers to focus on developing solutions that deliver real business value. supports developers with a host of on-demand development tools, including a point-and-click customization tool, toolkits for the most popular development environments, and the upcoming Apex programming language, Apex Code.

The Future of Software

Actually, the future of software is no software at all. At least, not traditional client/server software, which has become the bane of IT organizations that want to actually contribute to the bottom line. Instead, the on-demand model actually supports IT in making that contribution.
