Cloud Computing Case Studies
Celerant brought in Salesforce CRM in 2006, and, when Howard Lamb became CTO in 2007, he saw that the advantages of using the Force.com platform for more than just CRM.
is also actively investigating third-party offerings on the AppExchange marketplace to replace existing systems for human resources and financial tracking. â€œHaving the option to purchase applications to run on Force.com
gives us the ability to make our own buy-versus-build decision without giving up the advantages of an on-demand environment,â€ says Lamb
Using the Force.com platform, Lamb
has found that he
staff can create applications that give more time for this crucial component of business improvement. â€œNinety percent of system development time is focused on design, configuration and installation,â€ explains Lamb. â€œWith Force.com, those components are greatly reduced, or disappear altogether.â€
also says that Force.com
has had an impact on both how the IT
staff operates and, even more importantly, how IT
is perceived by senior management. â€œUsing Force.com, IT
is now able to deliver applications faster than the business can consume them,â€ he
says. â€œOur focus has shifted from application provision to helping the business achieve real results for our customers.â€
To sum it all up, Lamb
says â€œItâ€™s such a no-brainer from the CIO perspective.
