Thank you very much for your quick reply, Chris. Your feedback is insightful and invaluable. Wish you all the best. Hope your projects in-flight are going well.

BTW, strange to hear that some are using SFDC predominately as a backend, or even just as a database. Why not just use Oracle or SAP in that case?

Thanks. By backend, I mean, not developing on the platform itself. A lot of people use Salesforce as their CRM of choice, and there's a big market for integration. If that's the case, and you don't want to write "Salesforce" code you can simply read and write via API's and then use whatever platforms you want. It works, but as I said, I don't think it's the best use case for the system.
