In our agile business environment, organizations are looking to deploy Salesforce features independently and on demand. But how do you automate the process of developing, testing and publishing new features?

Salesforce is at the heart of many organizations. Its features help them thrive in the new world of digital customer experience to become faster and smarter while finding new ways to reach customers at every touchpoint.

Nevertheless, developing features is a costly processes and most organizations are only able to bring features to production every four or six weeks. That is far too infrequently if you want to constantly improve in a continuously changing agile environment.

CI/CD is often costly and complex

When developing software, we can no longer rely on traditional processes. Organizations that want to meet business needs and respond quickly in an ever-changing environment are striving for Continuous Implementation and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD). This allows teams to independently deploy their features at any time, which saves costs and reduces risks.

However, implementing your own CI/CD process is often expensive and complicated: out-of-the-box Salesforce does not supply a CI/CD Process, and setting up your own pipeline requires a huge investment and additional operational costs for maintenance and upgrades.
