# Chapter 13. Integrating Salesforce Data Using DreamFactory

Salesforce is the de facto standard CRM solution used by companies large and small to manage customer information and interactions. Although many competing solutions exist, Salesforce's dominance is made clear in the company's 2019 annual report in which it states 95% of the Fortune 100 run at least one application from the company's suite of solutions.

Many companies desire to access and manage Salesforce data into other applications. DreamFactory can greatly reduce the amount of work required to do so thanks to the native Salesforce database connector. In this chapter you'll learn how to configure the connector, and then interact with your Salesforce database using the DreamFactory-generated REST API.
