Hi there

If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you’re like us — spending most of your time on Salesforce DevOps, trying to figure out how to improve your processes.

Work Tools

You might be juggling a lot of different tools to complete your Salesforce DevOps processes. But have you ever thought about where these "work tools" came from? Why is there so much complexity? Why so much confusion?

Let’s travel back in time.

High Productivity

When Salesforce ventured into the large, enterprise market space, there was a lack of developer tools compared to other ecosystems like Microsoft. Developers in the space wanted to automate most of the mundane processes, and strive for higher productivity. They put together what they know best - solutions from other application development platforms along with tools that they already had in-house, and ultimately began using the solutions that they were aware of.

  • Git for version control and code management
  • Jenkins for deployments
  • Selenium for regression testing

All are great tools, but no one had Salesforce in mind while designing them.

And resulted in downfalls such as:

Different solutions

Different solutions

Partitioning the team, forcing Devs & Admins to use different solutions

Productivity

Slowing the team down, rather than accelerating its productivity

Zero alignment

Zero alignment with Salesforce’s click-not-code approach

Solutions using traditional DevOps tools were:

We wanted to break away from today’s tools - and build an innovative solution from the ground up.

So, we started with a clean slate and designed an all-in-one solution from scratch - so that we don’t have any constraints. We built an innovative version control solution, native pipelines, and tons of admin tools to help drive productivity.

Development Platform

It is a low-code application development platform.

Sandbox

Sandbox

Most of the development was done in the developer sandbox not in IDE

Cloud-based

Cloud-based

Salesforce is cloud-based - other application development is file-based.

Salesforce Admins

Salesforce Admins

Most Salesforce admins don’t have a computer science degree

Changes

Many changes are made directly in the production org. Ugh!
