The promise of platform as a service is very simple: Bring your code, and cloud vendor will handle everything else for you. Users build their applications with the vendor’s tools, APIs and supported programming languages. Platform as a service model of cloud computing increases programmers’ productivity, reduces development costs, and enables quick release of software. One of the leading platform as a service offers is the Salesforce Platform where development is performed using salesforce.com’s web interface and a proprietary development language called Apex. The biggest benefit of the Salesforce Platform is time savings for developers, because they can easily use existing common objects, forms and workflows. Many developers use the Salesforce Platform to offer their own software as a service applications.

The end-users can explore the aforementioned applications on the Salesforce AppExchange. It is a cloud computing marketplace launched in 2005 by Salesforce. You can develop and market your applications built on the Salesforce Platform or access thousands of free and paid applications built by others.
