Salesforce is really an overpriced, over complicated, awful UX and full of quirks kind of software. Anyone with any decent taste in software would probably write their own or use something else.

Salesforce is great because you can get using it for very little upfront investment. A two person sales team can use it straight out of the box and pay only two licenses. As you grow, you won’t need an IT guy to help scale the org, so you can just add licenses as needed. You may need an admin to help with sharing rules or workflow, but it’s cheap until you get into hundreds of users or complex integrations.

Any business can use Salesforce and benefit from it.

Run for the hills! But seriously. Salesforce is like crossfit...it's prepackaged, popular and results in some of the best and worst things you'll ever see in IT. It's also incredibly broad in implementation, so might mean anything. You might be doing visual programming via flows, drag dropping variables around to make stupid little algorithms, you might be integrating with Heroku and whatever development language that would use, you might be using aura, a JS library to build out front end solutions, be Apex focused, which is the java'esque back end of Salesforce. Depending on your existing code base, it can be productive, satisfying work or really really bad. There's people building entire React applications hosted in Salesforce and still be technically a Salesforce app.
