Salesforce Commerce Cloud creates a more expedient path between your ideas and execution. First, business users never have to worry about whether the infrastructure is ready to support their initiatives. Because cloud readiness is never an issue, they can launch new sites or execute promotions in days or hours, not months. Role-based, intuitive user interfaces empower the business user with control over the brand experience and site functionality — all with minimal IT involvement, as the cloud automatically scales and supports whatever they have planned. This frees your IT department to concentrate on driving strategic initiatives and innovation instead of supporting infrastructure and implementing upgrades. By empowering your users in these ways, you empower your business with tremendous agility. Not only can you execute your ideas more quickly, you are freed up to put more ideas into action.
