To that point, since the 2013 investment, Silverline has evolved from a Silver to Platinum Salesforce Cloud Alliance partner, with hundreds of consultants and more than 1,200 Salesforce implementations.
That trajectory should continue. IDC predicts that, within the financial services industry, the Salesforce economy will add $224.3 billion in new revenue and 730,900 new jobs by 2024. For the health care vertical, analysts project gains of $68.5 billion in new revenue and 222,600 new jobs by 2024. Again, Silverline specializes in both domains, and Sonnad says he looks forward to continued expansion.
“By investing in top partners like Silverline, Salesforce is making a difference firsthand in the investments themselves, allowing us to focus wholly on our clients’ successes,” he said.
Ryan Westwood, CEO of Simplus, which has completed more than 2,000 Salesforce implementations, agreed.
“Since Salesforce Ventures first invested in Simplus in 2016, we have expanded globally and are now a Salesforce Platinum Partner,” Westwood said in a prepared statement. “Salesforce Ventures has supported us throughout our expansion into APAC, Canada and EMEA. Salesforce Ventures’ presence in our board meetings, introductions and support of our ongoing strategy have been invaluable to [our] growth.”
In addition to more jobs tied directly to cloud computing, IDC estimates that Salesforce will help create 6.6 million indirect jobs through 2024, because organizations that buy cloud computing also purchase ancillary, yet related, products and services.
