"As a quick primer: Force.com is Salesforce.com's homegrown platform-as-a-service, with a focus on helping developers build employee-facing applications on top of data drawn from the Salesforce.com ecosystem, including CRM and the Sales Cloud. On the other hand, Heroku, which Salesforce acquired in 2011, is designed to be much more attractive for developers building customer-facing web apps, with Silicon Valley mainstays like Lyft and MailChimp building their web-based services on top of its more cutting-edge language support."
