It’s time to start thinking about the future of Salesforce DevOps.
An astute member of the Salesforce engineering community noticed a strange detail about Salesforce DevOps Center in the Winter 2024 Release Notes.
Updates about Salesforce DevOps Center were nowhere to be found.
A commenter confirmed that the Salesforce DevOps Center crew maintains changes in their GitHub repository, but even there the only things on the roadmap are small changes and bug fixes. This item about DevOps Center extensibility for example has tons of great insights from the community, but the feature idea hasn’t been updated since late 2022.
Now, of course this doesn’t mean that DevOps Center is going away, or even that it won’t be supported with new features in the future.
But what does this all mean for DevOps in Salesforce going forward? And what does it mean for Salesforce developers who need more from the platform?
The Top Salesforce DevOps Challenges Aren’t Going Away
When it comes to Salesforce DevOps, there are a few key challenges that can arise. Teams need to ensure the data in their org is up-to-date and accurate. They need a way to automatically keep track of all code changes across multiple environments and deployments. And they need properly integrated security measures in place for their applications.
All of these challenges require the latest updates and capabilities available, especially when it comes to security. We’ve seen a shift over the years from rudimentary change sets, to black-box solutions that don’t integrate well with developer workflows. Salesforce DevOps Center was meant to be the answer to these less-than-ideal setups.
So even if Salesforce DevOps Center can meet some of the most common challenges now, wIll it continue to meet these challenges in the future?
