DreamHouse is a sample application that demonstrates the unique value proposition of the Salesforce App Cloud for building Employee Productivity and Customer Engagement apps.
Thanks to App Cloud's metadata-driven environment, 80% of the DreamHouse app was built without code: Identity, security, data entry, validation rules, reports, process automation, social, mobile, and a lot more.
Using App Builder, DreamHouse admins can customize and extend the default experience with standard, custom, or AppExchange components, like the Map, PictureGallery, and SmartHome components.
Using Process Builder, DreamHouse admins can automate business processes without writing code, like sending push notification messages to prospective buyers when the price of a property they liked changed.
Liberated from writing infrastructure and commoditized code, DreamHouse developers use the Lightning Component Framework to deliver innovation and engaging experiences.
Whether they build Lightning Components or custom apps running on Heroku, the Lightning Design System makes it easy for DreamHouse developers to deliver stunning and cohesive user experiences .
With Heroku, DreamHouse developers can front-end App Cloud with apps written in any language, and whether they get hundreds or millions of hits per day, Heroku provides the deployment option to scale on demand.
