Understanding Salesforce Data Cloud

Businesses are now amassing customer data at an unprecedented rate. However, due to application sprawl, with organizations averaging between 253 and 473 applications, this data often resides in isolated silos. This fragmentation creates over a thousand variations of a single customer’s profile and interactions with a brand.  

Numerous firms attempted to address this issue by allocating resources towards the establishment of a data warehouse, a data lake, or a data Lakehouse or warehouse. Customers often express that they have stored their data on Snowflake, AWS, and Databricks. However, each data warehouse, data lake, or data Lakehouse has unique characteristics, resulting in variations in the structure and interaction of the data to the user experience.
