Why Salesforce Test Automation Shouldn’t Be Painful

In this talk, Mala will share a holistic view of the challenges of traditional software testing in the complex Salesforce testing ecosystem and provide a roadmap for leaders to overcome implementation roadblocks in partnership with R&D teams. Mala will demonstrate how an investment of a DevOps solution with a Sauce Labs integration helped her agile team achieve time reduction of up to 50% for overall flow, while doubling release velocity without additional headcount. If you are a manager looking to scale end-to-end testing coverage and/or wondering how to make your Salesforce test automation less painful, you won’t want to miss this leadership session.
