About this book

The ever-increasing need for designing state-of-the-art solutions using AI features requires a sound understanding of a vast array of AI capabilities that help you to architect modern solutions. Salesforce Einstein is a set of services that allows seamless implementation of advanced artificial intelligence (AI) features while retaining the ability to cater to custom requirements for the business.

This book will help you understand the business and technical benefits of building AI solutions and components available in Salesforce. As you work through a case study of a fictional company beginning to adopt AI in its Salesforce ecosystem, you'll learn how to configure and extend the out-of-the-box features on various Salesforce clouds, their pros, cons, and limitations. You'll also discover how to extend these features using on- and off-platform choices and how to make the best architectural choices when designing custom solutions. Later, you'll advance to integrating third-party AI services such as the Google Translation API, Microsoft Cognitive Services, and Amazon SageMaker on top of your existing solutions. This Salesforce book concludes by taking you through key architectural decisions and trade-offs that may impact the design choices you make.

By the end of this book, you'll be able to architect Salesforce AI solutions to meet various customer requirements confidently.
