As Salesforce orgs become more complex, governance and change management are more important than ever – and admins are at the center of those processes! Learn how to manage the entire Org Lifecycle Management process and business application ecosystem (including working with developers; managing multiple sandboxes; creating policies that ensure auditable change accountability; and more). Above all, we will teach you how to respond when you are asked to make certain configuration changes directly in production – always follow the governance process!

5. Process Builder or Apex Triggers: Choosing Between Automation Tools

Salesforce offers several means to operate various business processes in the background: Process Builder, Triggers, Flow, Workflows, and more. With all of these options, it can be difficult to choose the right tool for the job. This session will evaluate the different solutions to help you understand the strengths of each tool and how to decide which one is right for which scenario and user.
