- Einstein 1 Platform
Einstein 1 is a relaunch of the Salesforce platform to create a trusted AI platform that Salesforce customers can use with confidence to increase their productivity. Einstein Copilot is the key of Einstein 1, the built-in side panel of the user interface we’ve all become used to.
- Free Data Cloud and Tableau Licenses
Salesforce announced a free Data Cloud & Tableau license, for all customers who are using Sales and Service Cloud, Enterprise or Unlimited edition, to kick off their journey into these previously mysterious Salesforce products. It is a free package that includes two free Tableau Creator licenses, and Data Cloud licenses for up to 10,000 profiles.
- Copilot Studio (Prompt Builder + Skills Builder + Model Builder)
Copilot Studio is the place where salesforce professionals can have the power to implement impactful generative AI to support your user productivity. Copilot Studio consists of three components: Prompt Builder, Skills Builder, and Model Builder.
- Prompt Builder
Prompts are nothing but simply instructions given by the users to the large language models (LLMs) – the more context you provide to a prompt, the better the generated output you’ll receive. It will enable admins to create prompt templates, choose how they want to ‘ground’ the prompts in Salesforce data, and activate for users quickly and easily. Prompt builder is to Build, test, and deploy generative AI prompts for your users.
- Skills Builder
Grant access to generative AI.
- Model Builder
It provides customers with the flexibility to select their own AI models. It has the ability to select one of Salesforce’s proprietary large language models, or one of their preferred partners, including Anthropic, Cohere, Databricks, Google Cloud’s Vertex IX, or OpenAI.
- Data Cloud-Triggered Flow
Now with a Data Cloud embedded in the Einstein 1 platform, we can power automation with dynamic data from Data Cloud – real-time data, and data from various different systems.
Data cloud triggered Flow launches when the Data Cloud data model object (DMO) or calculated insight object (CIO) conditions are met.
- Data Graphs
Data Graphs enable you to visualize the relationships between data model objects (DMOs), even going several layers deep. It is similar to the Schema Builder, you can trace the related fields and rearrange the relationships in a drag-and-drop manner, to ensure that the correct field data will be included in an AI application.
This will create a dynamic set of data points to provide further instruction to the LLM.
- Tenets of Trusted, Ethical & Humane Al
Salesforce has advocated their Tenets of Trusted, Ethical & Humane Al that guide all of their innovations, designed to keep the trust between Salesforce and their customers, and customer companies and their customers. Salesforce created leadership roles in the ethics space before most other companies considered the need to place leaders in roles with these responsibilities.

The Einstein for Developers Extensions are available in beta now, this extension is built using Salesforce’s global CodeGen large language model.
