Salesforce.com, Inc. (NYSE:CRM) has expanded the availability of its Heroku Enterprise. The development follows App Cloud update. According to App Cloud chief at Salesforce, Brian Goldfarb, intriguing features have been built into Heroku Enterprise, making it a key business tool.

It’s been a long time coming for Heroku Enterprise. Salesforce.com, Inc. (NYSE:CRM) announced the platform last September at the Dreamforce event, but it wasn’t widely available for those who needed to use it.

Heroku Enterprise not only expands Salesforce offerings under App Cloud, but also adds to the company’s diversification into enterprise PaaS market. It is worth noting that Salesforce is in the process of expanding and shifting its business model. In particular, the company is becoming more active in creating solutions for specific industries and healthcare and finance services are among its main target industries. However, Heroku Enterprise is an offering that still cuts across board.

What’s in Heroku Enterprise?

Outlining the features in Heroku Enterprise during the announcement of the availability of the tool in App Cloud, Goldfarb said Heroku Enterprise comes with a feature called Private Spaces. With the Private Spaces feature, Goldfarb added that Heroku Enterprise is better equipped to connect to virtual private networks, offer global regional support and provide more effective identity management.

As for the matter of identity management, Salesforce.com, Inc. (NYSE:CRM) has built capabilities in Heroku Enterprise that allow the tool to both connect to its own identity system as well as third-party systems such as Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s Active Directory.

Data sovereignty issue

With Heroku Enterprise, Salesforce.com, Inc. (NYSE:CRM) has also taken care of data sovereignty issue, especially saying that Global Regions in the tool addresses data residency matters that customers might have when using the tool.

To a greater extent, Salesforce believes that Heroku Enterprise and all the features built in it will help bring App Cloud closer to customers.
