As a CIO it only natural to evaluate the performance and the ROI of investing in a native Salesforce release management solution.

A successful Salesforce release management system is as much about technology as it is about people and processes. It is not an isolated process. Therefore, a release management solution needs to be aligned with the broader overarching business strategy.

So while on the technology front, a robust Salesforce release management solution helps you release faster and more often, with confidence, you also need to focus on the ROI and cost-benefit analysis when investing in it.

Why Enterprises must adopt Salesforce release management solution?

  • Complex IT Infrastructure:

Enterprises have complex IT infrastructure which increases the risk that the release of functionality in the new release might break, hence there is a need for robust release management. Release management becomes even more critical if there are multiple technologies or different versions of those technologies.

  • Multiple Delivery Teams Working in Parallel:

Your enterprise IT infrastructure is a collection of a shared environment. As the strength of your enterprise IT delivery teams increases, there is a greater chance that the release efforts will conflict with each other. A Salesforce release management solution ensures better collaboration and higher efficiency gains as it helps standardize and streamline the development and operations process.

  • Support the IT Team

Your existing IT team may not have sufficient experience in deploying Salesforce solutions into your operational environment. However, a native release management solution can improve productivity, coordination, as well as increase the number of successful releases and even reduce quality problems.
