A citizen developer is defined as an end user who creates business applications for consumption by others using corporate-IT-sanctioned development and runtime environments. This has profound implications for the future of IT in your organization. For citizen developers to succeed, they will need a new set of tools, as well as a new approach to application development and delivery. There will also be a critical new role to be played by IT in supporting citizen developers and bringing them out of the shadows. Unleash the Power of force.com addresses this new wave of IT – what it is, what it means, and how your organization can take advantage of it. This book describes: the burgeoning digital economy and how it is driving the need for citizen developers; the foundation and building blocks for a consistent enabling platform to support citizen developers; an implementation plan for a smooth transition to citizen application development; and a comprehensive description of force.com as a ready-to-go, complete citizen developer enabling platform.
