In its recent Landscape report, Forrester segmented consulting services partners based on Salesforce revenue into three categories: large, medium, and small. Each vendor was asked a number of detailed questions about their services and capabilities, including geographic presence, industry expertise, and Salesforce cloud/platform experience and expertise. Based on the responses, Forrester supplies information about these Salesforce consulting services partners to help organizations determine the best vendor for their Salesforce needs based on service capabilities, industry experience, and product skills.
As Salesforce has gotten increasingly complex, introducing multicloud, platform customization, and pushed beyond traditional CRM and acquired other platforms and technologies like MuleSoft, Slack, and Tableau, organizations have continued to look to Salesforce consulting services partners for support. Forrester goes on to say that these partners can help organizations:
- Accelerate time to value with existing accelerators and know-how
- Reimagine business models and processes
- Manage organizational change for maximum results
