Salesforce's IoT Strategy


Salesforce is a large and well-disciplined development company. It’s pretty good at marketing too. It continues to innovate in all product areas, from core platform to applications, and the one criticism I’d make is that it’s information overload at times.

The company will continue to pay commissions on Apple Music memberships as well. Both the extent of the cuts and the brief notice provided — they go into effect next week — are surprising.
