Data is surely the driving force behind all the business processes. This huge amount of data and records though gives an enterprise a slight edge over its competitors, but it also comes with its own set of challenges in terms of collection, storage, analytics, and management. In such cases, Salesforce as a CRM platform comes to the rescue of such companies. Salesforce offers its valuable service to more than 150,000 enterprises all around the world. Equipped with a 360-degree holistic view of every customer, companies can make well-informed decisions, generate more leads, and multiply their chances for success and business growth.
But even Salesforce has its limitations in terms of storage space in order to maintain best-in-class platform productivity. The good thing is that Salesforce, being the #1 customer relationship management solution, allows its customers to address such storage concerns using various external systems. One such viable solution is AWS. Launched in 2002, Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a comprehensive cloud computing platform that offers flexible, reliable, scalable, easy-to-use, and cost-effective computing solutions. In addition to being easy to use, AWS web services interface allows companies to store and retrieve any amount of data from anywhere on the web.
