Persistent moves from ‘Rising Star’ to cross-category ‘Leader’ ISG Provider Lens™ 2020 for Salesforce Ecosystem Partners
The ISG Provider Lens™ 2020 – Salesforce Ecosystem research study analyses the relevant software vendors and service providers in the U.S. market, based on a multi-phased research and analysis process, and positions these providers based on the ISG Research methodology.
The “Salesforce Ecosystem” study examines various offerings around the Salesforce platform. First it analyzes providers who act as implementation partners for Salesforce and design, configure and implement solutions for clients of this platform. Within this group a distinction is made between on one hand those providers that beside their Salesforce related knowledge are also capable of integrating Salesforce based solutions into major system landscapes (system integrators) and on the other hand those providers that are specialized in the implementation of Salesforce itself. Furthermore, the study analyzes providers that offer services to support their customers in the operation of the implemented Salesforce solutions (managed application services).
This segment addresses providers that are highly specialized in Salesforce sales, service and Commerce Cloud and are mainly focused on an agile approach for implementation. An important aspect revolves around consulting on the redesign of processes while using Salesforce applications. These providers tend to be best suited for projects without major integration needs, typically for medium and small size customers.
