Salesforce will Compete with Netflix and YouTube: Entering the Streaming Industry

The service is Sailforce‘s first attempt to step out of its core business of cloud-based CRM and management applications. The idea is to provide content that can help organizations and their employees promote themselves. In the first stage, the service will be free.

Salesforce is expected to launch a video and streaming content service for companies and organizations, according to a report by the Axios website published tonight. The new service is expected to be called Salesforce +, said the VP of marketing for the cloud computing giant, Sarah Franklin.

The service is Sailforce‘s first attempt to step out of its core business of cloud-based CRM and management applications. The company will run the service for free in the first phase, when additional paid options will be added later – “this is in accordance with its popularity,” according to Franklin.

The official announcement is expected ahead of the company’s conference this coming September. Her offer will include content production, initially in its exclusive production and later as part of customer content productions. The content will be available 24/7 and will also include the option of live broadcasts such as conferences or events. The company’s conference will be the first to be broadcast on this technology and the company has even set up a production division and a professional studio to help produce the films and content.
