AppExchange is a Leader. What Does this Mean for You?

It was not long ago that Salesforce was named a Leader in the Forrester New Wave™: SaaS Marketplaces, Q4 2018 report. In its evaluation of AppExchange, the Forrester report stated that Salesforce “still leads the SaaS marketplace world.”

The report evaluated eight vendors, and Forrester gave Salesforce the highest possible score of “differentiated rating” in eight of the 10 criteria, including buyer interface, availability of applications, and intelligence and automation. “Salesforce was the first major SaaS marketplace and remains a powerful choice in terms of scale, breadth, and innovation.” (To learn more about why Salesforce was named a Leader in Forrester's New Wave™ for SaaS Marketplaces, download the full report here.)
