Following traditional methods for the deployment of Salesforce projects is time-consuming. Also, the major problem is with versioning of code, which causes issues in every environment. A particular feature may run perfectly in a Developer sandbox, but we might face issues in production. Tracking every change done by developers and administrators is very difficult, so the miscommunication between teams can result in failed deployments or delay in product delivery.
We can consider scenario where a particular feature needs to be launched as soon as possible and we are facing deployment issues. We may not able to resolve it in time and this will impact on our customers and business as well. We will face challenges such as the following:
- Failed deployments
- Unable to track issues
- No code coverage
- Failed test cases
We need to streamline all these issues and have one solution which will solve almost all problems; here, DevOps comes into the picture!!
