Lightning is the next generation of the Salesforce1 Platform, delivering a component framework and a new set of tools that allow channel partners and developers to roll out highly powerful and dynamic web apps, built for the mobile first. Apart from the ability to deliver a highly customized, power-packed UI, Lightning makes integrating data as well as automating key business processes a seamless procedure.
Fast and Easy App Development
Force.com and Heroku have already allowed developers to use the Salesforce platform to build worldclass employee and customer facing apps faster than ever before, using fewer resources. Lightning raises the bar considerably and extends such advantages to the mobile space in a big way. An IDC White Paper sponsored by Salesforce estimates that Lightning reduces the time needed to bring apps to market by 70 percent. In fact, Lightning is the fastest way to build mobile apps.
Lightning delivers quick and easy development using components. Lightning Components also make it very easy to offer extreme customization. So, what’s a component? A component is a collection of files. All the developer needs to do is select and add the relevant component for the required feature.
The advantages of speed, efficiency, resilience and ease-of-use through Lightning Components are realized in the following ways:
Lightning allows application development using drag-and-drop, without the need to write code. Needless to say, this revolutionizes the development space, making it possible for even novices and business managers with no coding experience to roll-out highly powerful apps. Here’s how it works:
All these tools together make it possible to visualize the entire development process in one place.
Lightning apps are responsive and offer a consistent user experience. The Lightning Component framework supports the latest browser technology such as HTML5, CSS3, and touch events.
Lightning makes it very easy for developers to create responsive apps that pull in the screen size details from the device and format them accordingly. With the popularity of mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, phablets and wearables growing, and all these devices coming in virtually infinite screen sizes, responsive web design has become an essential function, and Lightning allows developers to get this done in double quick time, without too much effort.
The Salesforce1 Lightning Platform is already a trusted platform for big brands and the most innovative companies across the globe. A recent study sponsored by Salesforce estimates that the Lightning Platform delivers 50% faster design of new apps, 52% faster application deployment, all, at an overall 42% savings in IT costs.
The power of Lightning comes through its unique mix of powerful features with simplicity. It breaks down barriers of technology and makes it possible for developers to deploy highly powerful features and functionality in a simple way, very often requiring just a few mouse clicks. The need for coding is reduced drastically and even novices can now roll out high quality apps. For businesses, Lightning provides the freedom to manage their business, without spending too much on developing apps.
