Governance is not an ‘option’ any more – it’s a ‘must’. After watching Ian Gotts present elementstra.wpengine.com at the Salesforce Boston World Tour last year (2018) – we finally bit the bullet and purchased Elements. We’re already seeing value with the Chrome plugin which displays a wealth of information about our metadata right within our Salesforce set-up screens (see screenshot). With the speed at which we are building upon the Salesforce.com platform; and the strategic value this platform provides to the organization (not to mention compliance related implications like GDPR) we cannot ignore the governance requirements that have historically been bypassed in this Saas platform. Documentation, Change-control, contextual Information, “meta-data on meta-data”, integration tracking; is not an option any more – it is a requirement for success. I highly recommend elementstra.wpengine.com, start by reading the Chaos to Control ebook.
