Salesforce OmniStudio is a tool to build digital customer experiences tailored to any industry and can deliver automation for any business use case with its No-Code and Low-Code features.
Salesforce OmniStudio is a great tool to create guided interactions that integrate into any industry-specific process. Admins can easily develop guided user experiences without code.
In that process, by only dragging components, the admin can integrate a component with external data. Imagine a developer or administrator consuming external system data in no time and in a scalable manner, all without writing any code.
Show that data, either from Salesforce or external sources, in a contextual screen for a full view of relevant data in a single place.
Why use OmniStudio

Components of OmniStudio
FlexCards: Cards that display contextual information and actions in an at-a-glance format for a customer. a Datasource Wizard populates a FlexCard with data from one or more sources via point-click integration.
OmniScripts: A guided path to complete a business process. It’s a Modular Architecture in nature. A developer can integrate data from multiple sources (Salesforce or third-party), manipulate the data, and send it back to its source, all from within the OmniScript. The data is captured in the standard JSON format.
OmniScripts has a great feature to dynamically generate documents from templates (MS Word, PDF, and HTML outputs), merge data from any data source and then create and operate on these documents like attaching them to Salesforce records and emailing them to recipients, plus delegate to DocuSign for eSignatures.
DataRaptors: Configurable services for retrieving, transforming, and updating data. A DataRaptor is a mapping tool that enables you to read, transform, and write Salesforce data. There are four types of DataRaptor: Turbo Extract, Extract, Load, and Transform.
Integration Procedures: Declarative feature and server-side processes that execute multiple actions in a single service call. An Integration Procedure is also recommended when you need fast processing of complex data from multiple sources. Server-side processing enables faster performance, since, in most cases, the server is faster than the client at processing data. Combining multiple actions in a single server call prevents round trips to the server. Minimizing client/server calls is beneficial, as more round trips mean slower performance.
DataRaptors and Integration Procedures deliver data to and from UI components. They orchestrate calls to Apex classes, calculation engines, and external application programming interfaces (APIs) to execute whatever business logic is required
