As we know that Salesforce Functions is a new service on the Salesforce Platform that allows us to deliver a more scalable experience by extending the data and workflows that we already have, making them more sturdy with the power of elastic compute and open language ductility.
It is a service that allows developers to write code that integrates with data and events on the Salesforce platform and run it on-demand with an elastic scale in a serverless environment. Salesforce functions will help you:
- Meet business needs with on-demand, elastic scale on trusted infrastructure
- Functions are event-driven, elastically scalable, and they can be written in a language of your choice, such as Node.js, Java, or Apex.
- It delivers connected experiences with Salesforce data.
- They provide complete access to data in your org and can be integrated with other low-code and pro-code services.

Why Salesforce Functions
Other than being another elastic service that scales up based on the usage and automatically scales down on low usage, Salesforce Functions brings in some unique industry-first capabilities that can be extremely useful and productive for companies that are invested in the Salesforce platform:

Operators can easily access them within Salesforce by using multiple reference methods and running external business logic with Salesforce org-context in the serverless functions.

The support for these technologies enables the addition of great features and can also drastically reduce the development time.
