80% of customers expect better customer experiences based on the data the companies collect. But most of the companies struggle with getting the most out of fragmented data accrued by different systems in the organization. To address these data management challenges, Salesforce has just released Salesforce Data Cloud this year. It’s a robust platform that centralizes customer data from multiple sources. It’s built with the power of AI, Data, and CRM. By establishing a single source of truth, it helps businesses to provide outstanding customer experiences in sales, service, marketing, and commerce as well as timely actionable insights.

The Data Cloud Spring ‘24 Release contains new features to boost data usability across the platform services and applications of Salesforce CRM. With the help of features like Data Cloud Triggered Flows and Data Cloud Related Lists, the release makes it possible to view customer engagement data from a website on every customer record in Salesforce.

Using Data Cloud, you can connect data from any source and utilize it within applications that business users depend on for daily operations. This is made feasible since Data Cloud is built on the foundational metadata layer of Salesforce, offering a common language that integrates all Salesforce apps and low-code platform services.
