Check out this interesting post to know about 6 hot DevOps trends that will revolutionize the Salesforce landscape in 2023.

It’s no exaggeration to say DevOps is one of the most widely adopted software development philosophies in the IT world; a study reveals the global market for DevOps solutions is likely to grow from USD 8.95 billion in 2022 to USD 20.53 billion in 2026, registering a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 23.08%.

The extensive use of DevOps can be attributed to the ability provided by the novel paradigm to upgrade software systems rapidly, with minimal interruption to business operations. The advent of the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the adoption of DevOps across the industry spectrum; companies needed to enhance their IT systems quickly to meet the requirements of an ever-growing number of digital customers.

Today, we’ll look at 6 key trends that’ll shape the world of Salesforce DevOps services in 2023.

6 Major Salesforce DevOps Trends in 2023

  1. Serverless Architectures
  2. Adoption of Low Code Tools
  3. Artificial Intelligence (AI)
  4. Adoption of Infrastructure as a Code (IAC)
  5. Data Security
  6. Chaos Engineering Techniques

1. Considerable Growth in the Use of Serverless Architectures

Serverless architectures are novel cloud computing execution models that enable organizations to use machine resources on demand, thereby allowing them to optimize costs. A provider of serverless architectural solutions takes care of all back end operations freeing IT teams to focus on innovation and improvement of service delivery.

The use of serverless architectures in the execution of Salesforce DevOps projects is nothing new but will increase exponentially in the new year. Serverless architectures help DevOps teams eliminate various risks and challenges pertaining to pipeline management, thereby enabling them to concentrate their energies more effectively on developing and deploying new capabilities.

2. Significant Increase in the Adoption of Low Code Tools

We all know Salesforce is a pioneer in the development of low code applications. DevOps teams working on Salesforce projects across the world have been utilizing capabilities of powerful low code tools to upgrade orgs and add new features, and this trend is only likely to grow considerably in 2023.

A major advantage of using low code tools in Salesforce DevOps projects is they help accelerate development and deployment activities. This helps companies gain a decisive advantage in a rapidly-evolving business environment. No wonder, the adoption of low code tools will vastly increase in the coming days.

3. Artificial Intelligence (AI) Will Play a Major Role in Salesforce DevOps Programs

AI is radically transforming various aspects of software development and DevOps is no exception. As AI-powered algorithms get better with each passing day, the need for manual execution of DevOps activities gets substantially reduced. For instance, ChatGPT, a revolutionary AI-enabled tool, can perform various coding tasks, and it’s likely to become more efficient over a period.

The use of AI-powered tools in execution of Salesforce DevOps projects will grow considerably in 2023, as many companies are opting to enhance development efficiencies and cut human capital costs to cope up with a highly uncertain business environment.

4. Widespread Adoption of Infrastructure as a Code (IAC)

IAC is one of the fast-growing trends that will profoundly impact Salesforce DevOps operations, by enabling seamless automation of management of IT infrastructure. It will help companies monitor underlying code continuously, perform quality engineering activities virtually and maintain version libraries in a highly effective manner.

Another key benefit of using IAC is development and IT infrastructure teams can work closely. It enables the use of terminology and set standards that all stakeholders of the DevOps project can clearly understand. Needless to say, this facilitates better communication between different teams, which is a basic tenet of the DevOps philosophy.

5. Data Security Will Receive More Focus Than Ever

The significance of ensuring proper security to business data in a Salesforce DevOps project cannot be understated. Companies must make sure their data is secure at each stage of the DevOps lifecycle to prevent it from falling into wrong hands. As cyber crimes increase in number and sophistication, organizations will have to come up with robust security frameworks to protect information in their Salesforce orgs.

The growing focus on data security will lead to an increased adoption of DevSecOps (Development, Security and Operations). DevSecOps calls for effective integration of proven data security practices into DevOps initiatives. It enables smooth coordination between development, data security and IT operations teams to facilitate high levels of data security.

6. Chaos Engineering Techniques Will Be Commonplace

Chaos engineering refers to a collection of techniques that enable organizations to conduct experiments on their systems to understand how they behave in turbulent conditions in the production environment. The experiments help analyze the ability of the system to withstand failures and ensure it works reliably, as desired.

The trend of using chaos engineering in Salesforce DevOps has already begun, and it is likely to grow further in 2023. Chaos engineering help companies gain deep insights into the functioning of the enhanced Salesforce org, cut maintenance expenditures in a big way and deliver superior experiences to their clients.

As you can see, the 6 trends listed above go a long way in enhancing Salesforce DevOps efficiencies and empower organizations to upgrade their orgs rapidly, in an efficient and cost-effective manner, in 2023 (and beyond).
