Performing a Successful Technical Debt Assessment in Salesforce

Introduction

Organisations using Salesforce will inevitably accumulate technical debt over time. It’s a costly side effect of growth, and to manage it successfully, these organisations need to not only remove their existing debt but also understand its causes and develop a plan to manage it in the future.

If your Salesforce platform no longer works the way you expected, or business requirements are no longer being fulfilled because new configurations are tied up in spaghetti code, you may have a technical debt problem. To reduce the technical debt, regular assessment as part of change and release management is a must. This not only helps cut down on maintenance overheads, but also keep the implementation clean.

In this guide, we will walk you through the focus areas you need to cover to carry out a successful technical debt assessment in the Salesforce platform.
