This morning, Salesforce.com announced Force.com for Google App Engine, a Python library and test suite for apps running on App Engine that enables developers to easily access the Force.com Web services API. This means that developers can now build apps that manipulate and display data stored on Force.com.
We're excited about the breadth of new applications enabled by this integration. To name just a few examples:
- browser-based enterprise apps that help members of your organization manage contacts and orders
- large-scale consumer apps that offer personalized experiences to your customers
- online marketing campaigns that generate leads directly
It's fantastic to see App Engine gaining traction in the world of enterprise software--whether you want to deploy a browser-based tool to members of your organization or a personalized, customer-focused app that scales to millions of users, App Engine's ease of use and scaling power make it an ideal choice for enterprise development. With Force.com for App Engine you can now connect apps with the CRM and custom data you already store on the Force.com platform.
