As businesses harness the potential of Salesforce for their CRM and other enterprise applications, the need for efficient and timely releases for Salesforce becomes increasingly important. Release velocity—the speed at which organizations can deliver software improvements—is a key metric for any business that needs to stay competitive. When acceleration of release velocity is consistently successful, it can bring a range of tangible benefits.

Release velocity is closely related to the concept of continuous delivery, which is a methodology where teams launch small increments of an application or product at a time, rather than large batches. This makes it easier to build, test, and deploy, ensuring that your business can quickly and cost-effectively deploy the newest features, enhancements, and bug fixes to your customer base. This in turn is associated with improved customer satisfaction, as customers can experience the latest innovations without needing to make major system updates.

For technology businesses leveraging Salesforce, rapid release velocity is especially critical. As Salesforce applications grow more complex and integrated with other business systems, the ability to rapidly deploy new features, fixes, and other updates can help firms better manage and control their customer data.

With rapid release velocity, businesses can more quickly respond to customer requests, reducing the potential for customer churn and increasing customer loyalty and satisfaction. Similarly, faster delivery of product features and updates can enable businesses to more efficiently track customer behaviors and habits, enabling more tailored offerings or experiences customized to the user.

Maintaining a rapid pace of release velocity helps the customer and the business, but it’s important to remember that it’s equally vital for businesses to employ a comprehensive suite of solutions to maintain system security, data backups, and release management as they embark on a continuous-delivery strategy. Without effective and timely data backups, organizations could be presented with the costly prospect of attempting to recover lost or corrupted data in the event of a system issue or failure. Similarly, with effective release management processes, businesses can ensure the accuracy, quality, and integrity of the code they’re releasing to users.
