I am learning about Pardot Cloud. I have searched a lot but did not find answers that will satisfy my questions.
By learning on trailhead, I know that Salesforce treats Pardot as something as "external" system with specific internal Pardot objects that are mapped to standard/custom objects in Salesforce.
- Why Pardot uses own objects instead of using standard Salesforce objects, or why Salesforce does not create more standard objects which fill fit Pardot requirements?
- I cannot find metadata for for example "Prospect" object. Are they avaiable? Are they considered as Salesforce metadata object?
- Why there is sync mechanism? Why Pardot is not operating on Salesforce records on real-time?
