Salesforce empowers organizations to embrace remote working practices.
Trend 2: Hyperautomation and Workflow Optimization
Gartner predicts that organizations could realize an impressive 30% reduction in operational expenses by 2024 by combining hyperautomation technologies and revamped operational processes with their synergies to realize efficiency gains of at least 30-35% in operational expenses.

According to Forrester research, low-code development platforms will comprise over 65% of application development activity by 2024 according to Salesforce’s survey of IT leaders who believe low-code can significantly boost agility and speed to market in their organization.
Software expansion traditionally required skilled coding abilities and time-intensive efforts that involved both resource and time waste in projects.
