Build vs Buy: Making the Right Choice for Your Salesforce DevOps Solution

Discover why building a Salesforce DevOps solution in-house is a resource-intensive option that can take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, including 2 to 5 engineers.

Learn why a Salesforce DevOps Platform allows you to release 80% faster, leveraging your existing team and tools.

The Common Pitfalls of Built Solutions


As your business expands, your DevOps team may find themselves constantly dealing with issues instead of focusing on delivering products. Your designated experts can unintentionally become a bottleneck, causing delays in new projects, builds, and releases.


Plugins can introduce vulnerabilities, making it challenging to guarantee their quality and security levels. To prevent security incidents, it becomes necessary to allocate additional resources towards implementing an effective authorization strategy.


Jenkins is often the default choice for developing a Salesforce DevOps Solution. However, this choice can limit the visibility of your team's work and increase reliance on a few individuals to share insights into performance.
