Challenges of Software Delivery with Salesforce
Salesforce users must deliver faster, cheaper, and higher quality changes to compete in the rapid and ever-evolving business world. The goal is to get changes and releases, whether large or small, into the hands of your end-users as quickly as possible.
The traditional process of migrating Salesforce changes across environments is manual, tedious, and error-prone. Additionally, it is difficult to tell what needs to be migrated, and there isn’t clear visibility into what has been migrated to each environment, when the changes were made, and by whom. Keeping metadata in sync between Salesforce sandboxes and orgs is a time-consuming and error-prone challenge.
This doesn’t allow for a fast, cost-effective, or high-quality software delivery life cycle (SDLC).
Everyone on your team wants to manage change and improve your ability to deliver, including developers, administrators, release managers, and other executive positions in both the IT department and the business. But manual tasks are dragging them down.
Driving Business Value with Automation
You can overcome these challenges by automating the process from end-to-end!
When manual tasks are automated, you can begin to drive real business value by allowing your team to do what they do best. Developers can spend time developing. Administrators can focus on tasks that require their higher-level expertise. Release Managers can have insight to what’s going on and more effectively manage the release of changes into production.
Then, IT can truly support the business and raise the bar for the organization as a whole.
The FlexDeploy DevOps Platform
FlexDeploy is a DevOps platform supporting Build Automation, Deployment Automation, and Release Orchestration. With over 100 plugins and integrations available out-of-the-box, it efficiently drives build and deploy processes. Furthermore, it is extensible, so you can incorporate many open-source and commercial technologies without writing scripts or having to manually integrate your tools
FlexDeploy integrates the toolchain from end-to-end. You can integrate your entire IT landscape into FlexDeploy, including tools from source control and project planning through service management and monitoring.
By integrating the toolchain, you can streamline and drive consistent processes. Then you can build and deploy changes automatically and keep everyone in the tools where they are most productive and happy
With FlexDeploy, you can also package up changes related to a wide variety of technologies, including Salesforce. You can manage the automation of configurations and changes across orgs and environments. By defining a release pipeline and setting up gates to ensure quality, you can manage the release process.
Automating Salesforce with FlexDeploy
Fortunately for Salesforce users, FlexDeploy loves Salesforce! This means you can automate and improve the deployment and tracking process of Salesforce implementations.
FlexDeploy’s out-of-the-box support for Salesforce allows you to incorporate full continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) into your changes, in addition to all the capabilities previously described.
The cherry on top, is that setting up Salesforce is made easy with FlexDeploy’s blueprints, allowing you to start automating Salesforce changes as quickly as possible.
