It Improves the Quality of the Configurations

CI/CD automates the testing of the new configurations to make sure they’ll function the way you want them to after deployment. As a result of automated testing, bugs and other issues are caught early on in the development process. They then have a much lower chance of making it into production and negatively impacting business.

It Improves Communication and Collaboration Between Developers and Operations Teams

Automation lightens the load for development teams and operations teams because it reduces the amount of manual work they have to do. In addition, they’re less likely to have to address issues after already deploying a new feature or change. This leads to improved collaboration between teams, allowing them to work efficiently through their backlog and address the changes stakeholders want faster and more effectively.

It Accelerates Change Management

Because CI/CD allows you to integrate, test, deliver, and deploy changes more quickly, it accelerates change management in your Salesforce instance. You can deploy changes, new features, and updates to your production environment faster than ever before while minimizing the chance of downtime. This enables your business to continuously and seamlessly engage with your customers.

It Enables Your Business to Respond Faster to Changing Market Demands

With accelerated change management in Salesforce, your sales team can be more nimble and agile. They can respond more quickly to changing business requirements without fear of downtime. This results in improved business continuity, which is beneficial for your organization’s bottom line.

CI/CD in Salesforce DevOps Provides a Better Experience

CI/CD in Salesforce DevOps facilitates a smooth workflow, as well as the streamlined delivery and deployment of changes. This results in less frustration and an overall better experience for developers and operations teams who can consequently be more productive. As a result, end users also enjoy an improved user experience and are able to do their jobs more effectively.
