Big in Japan! Salesforce is doubling down on this key market, but announcing the opening of its second data center in Japan that will help it reach businesses and government agencies in the country.
While also allowing the leading CRM platform provider in the world to meet the growing demand of cloud-based services across the Asia-Pacific region, as a whole.
The facility has recently opened, and is located in Kobe in the Kansai region.
It follows the first data center that Salesforce opened in Japan, back in November 2011. This second endeavor shows that there is significant scope for growth in the country, which is one of the greatest consumers of technology on the plant.
This newly opened facilities expand the Intelligent Customer Success Platform capabilities that Salesforce offers, including platforms like Sales Cloud, Service Cloud, App Cloud, Community Cloud, Analytics Cloud and more.
And what’s most interesting is that all these abovementioned platforms are equipped with the Einstein Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology that Salesforce launched in March this year, which allows less technology savvy developers to build AI powered applications quickly.
As Alex Dayon, President and Chief Product Officer of Salesforce notes:
“With Einstein, we are democratizing AI, enabling everyone to achieve new levels of productivity and accelerate growth, directly within the products they use every day.”
Salesforce witnesses a 30% year-over-year growth in revenue in the Asia-Pacific region in the fourth quarter of 2017, and this new data center will help the company to further bolster its success.
Particularly in the face of growing competition from larger technology heavyweights like IBM, Oracle and SAP.
