IBM Cloud Tools to Help Accelerate Your Salesforce Integration Projects

IBM Cloud Integration showcases capabilities to accelerate your integration projects by helping you easily integrate Watson APIs, process real-time Salesforce events, access OpenWhisk serverless compute, and more. Cloud Integration helps developers capitalize on integrating data quickly and efficiently, spanning solutions like real time events, on-demand integration, and bulk and wave analytics.

Real-time event processing has become common for new integration projects. IBM’s offerings support each event generation method including a no-code approach to automated notifications and once-only critical updates.

In addition to change notifications handled by the real time events pattern, many integration projects require on-demand access to data in Salesforce for CRUD operations. Again, you can use a no-code approach to retrieve and update Salesforce data. The Salesforce connector is one of many applications available in the drag-and-drop experience to handle common integration routines.

Force.com Bulk API and Wave Analytics APIs form the bedrock of Salesforce integration, and IBM provides extensive support to assist with your data integration scenarios and analytics.

The Weather Company: Building Weather Apps That Transform Business

Bring that universal talking point of weather to your client interaction every day. The Weather Company offers weather insights for Salesforce to help you start the conversation, opening up opportunities using Watson and Einstein to help you better communicate important, hyperlocal, personalized information to your clients to build trust and deepen connections.
