$272 Billion Salesforce Ecosystem Opportunity

“The results show that we’re just at the early stages of a massive economic opportunity driven by the cloud.”

What an amazing conclusion considering the amount of forecasted revenue we are talking about.  The potential in ‘The Cloud’, and with PaaS in particular, is simply mind-blowing.  Below is a report from IDC about the Saleforce ecosystem.


  • By 2018, Salesforce and its ecosystem of customers and partners will create 1 million jobs and generate $272 billion in GDP impact worldwide.
  • The Salesforce ecosystem currently generates 2.8 times the revenues of Salesforce itself and is expected to grow to 3.7 times as large as Salesforce.
  • Customers report rapid ROI on their cloud investments, driven primarily from revenue growth and new innovations.
