Apex is a development platform that is used to build software as a service
application on top of the customer relationship management functionality.
The software allows developers and those in the industry to access Salesforce.com’s back-end database and client server interfaces to build third-party sales as a software application. This includes an application
program interface, or API, that is used to access data on Salesforce.com.
These Apex applications are usually run directly from Salesforce.com’s
servers and do not require installation on a PC. Once an application has been created via the software, it can be published for multiple users or kept private for individual use. Features include Builder, API and code.
Jobs that involve Apex include:
– Salesforce Developer
– Oracle E-Business Developer
