Architecting AI Solutions on Salesforce

By: Lars Malmqvist

Overview of this book

Written for Salesforce architects who want quickly implementable AI solutions for their business challenges, Architecting AI Solutions on Salesforce is a shortcut to understanding Salesforce Einstein’s full capabilities – and using them. To illustrate the full technical benefits of Salesforce’s own AI solutions and components, this book will take you through a case study of a fictional company beginning to adopt AI in its Salesforce ecosystem. As you progress, you'll learn how to configure and extend the out-of-the-box features on various Salesforce clouds, their pros, cons, and limitations. You'll also discover how to extend these features using on- and off-platform choices and how to make the best architectural choices when designing custom solutions. Later, you'll advance to integrating third-party AI services such as the Google Translation API, Microsoft Cognitive Services, and Amazon SageMaker on top of your existing solutions. This isn’t a beginners’ Salesforce book, but a comprehensive overview with practical examples that will also take you through key architectural decisions and trade-offs that may impact the design choices you make. By the end of this book, you'll be able to use Salesforce to design powerful tailor-made solutions for your customers with confidence.
