The Salesforce company was founded by former Oracle executive “Marc Benioff, Parker Harris, Dave Moellenhoff and Frank Dominguez” in 1999, and was one of the world’s first cloud computing companies. Because of Salesforce simplicity and speed, they quickly grew and become so popular.

On the other hand, the other software companies requiring the servers to host, Salesforce led the charge with off-premise, or in other words, ‘cloud computing’.
