Measure twice, cut once – As the scope of an enterprise-grade managed application grows, additional resources are needed to support rich implementations. The DreamOps Guide includes over thirty core capabilities that you can use to streamline and enrich package development.


 – We are what we repeatedly do – The platform has all the components we need to build an efficient deployment pipeline and support continuous delivery of enterprise-grade managed packages. The goal of continuous delivery is to increase customer satisfaction by being able to distribute an updated release at any time. The DreamOps Experience extends the base components with other capabilities that all devops professionals should want in their toolbelt.


Many hands make light work – Offering software as a service requires a broad range of skills, from coding, to testing, to writing. Some people are able to focus on a single role, others juggle multiple roles. Either way, we step through the responsibilities of each role in isolation, so you can concentrate on one job at a time. For a 30,000 foot view, visit the Pipeline page.


Adapt, adopt, and improve – Checklists are the DreamOps katas. Using a checklist helps you complete routine tasks quickly and reliably. By adopting and adapting these templates to your own environment, you can continuously improve as your process grows.


Well begun is half done – Standing up a continuous delivery process for the first time is a daunting task. To help you get started, we've laid out the steps each Role can take to piece together a seamless workflow.


A word cloud in the shape of a thumbs upA word to the wise – is a rich platform with many unique characteristics. The DreamOps Glossary provides a quick reference to the special terms you encounter when working with Salesforce and the platform. Some of these terms are attributed to the ISVForce Guide Glossary.
