Basics of DevOps Methodology

DevOps is a collaborative Agile methodology approach that bridges the gap between software development and operations teams. It involves continuous integration, continuous delivery, and continuous deployment. The ultimate aim is to help developers automate the various stages of software delivery and product feature releases.

Introducing Salesforce DevOps Center

Salesforce DevOps Center is the ultimate platform to help agile teams release their technology solutions faster. Developers and software testers can collaboratively build, test, and deploy custom technology solutions across Salesforce environments. Hence, it’s ideal for the development and performance of operations teams.

Why Salesforce DevOps Center?

DevOps Center brings improved features and capabilities to build and deploy apps faster for companies under immense pressure to deliver high-quality products to customers. The key features of Salesforce DevOps Center include:

Better organized work

Teams can have dedicated Work Items to work on certain development teaks. These work items are easily traceable to check the status of the ongoing work activities.

Automated change tracking for faster releases

DevOps Center automatically tracks the code changes as teams work on application development in the test environments. Later, the release manager can plan faster code releases after monitoring the changes.

Customized pipelines

Companies can custom-create CI/CD pipelines with the DevOps center to overview the entire software development workflow. All team members can view the code changes through pipelines associated with different development stages.

Seamless integrations with Source Control

Developers can connect the DevOps continuous delivery pipeline with any version control system like GitHub. So developers raise Pull Requests to push the code changes from test and stage environments to production environments.

Easy deployment of changes with a few clicks

It’s easy to visualize the entire development pipeline through DevOps Center. Hence, development and operations teams can easily migrate code changes from one stage to another with just a few clicks.

Supports fusion teams

DevOps Center is accessible to all teams like salespeople, service engineers, marketing experts, finance teams, developers, software developers, and IT admins. So anyone within the project can access the development pipelines and work on delivering business solutions.
