Salesforce Governance Strategy
To implement DevOps, start by defining a Salesforce governance strategy regarding how everyone on your team participates in the flow of change. When you define a strategy for making changes using Salesforce DevOps tools, you can dramatically increase who gets to participate in the ideation process of change management.
For many teams, the process of adoption of these new methodologies causes some anxiety.

DevOps aims to break down silos and encourage more people to participate in the management of Salesforce.

You’re also able to test those solutions without worrying it will drain your team’s time and resources. As a result, you’ll see a positive impact on your team’s bottom line!
