The increasing value of Salesforce DevOps skills in 2022

A new hobby? A new exercise regime? A new job? It’s that time of the year again where we all get stuck into self-improvement.

If career progression is top of your resolution list, then upskilling in Salesforce DevOps could be the way to go. More and more companies have implemented Salesforce for everything from marketing, to sales, customer experience and much more, while Gearset’s State of Salesforce DevOps Survey 2021 revealed that 90% of the Salesforce ecosystem is using or planning to adopt a source driven workflow.

This makes having entry-level Salesforce DevOps skills increasingly valuable in the job market and workplace.

The increased popularity of Salesforce DevOps tools and practices has boosted the kudos of team members who have mastered them. So if you want to raise your profile and help your company grow in 2022, then sharpening your skills is a no-brainer.

Salesforce DevOps on the up-and-up in 2022

And for those who need a little more convincing, it’s good to know that these trends are set to continue in 2022. According to Google’s State of DevOps report 2021, DevOps has become a byword for business success, with elite performing teams consistently being those that have adopted DevOps principles and practices.

If DevOps is at the forefront of performance, then employees with the skills to implement DevOps practices will find themselves in demand.

DevOps skills aren't just crucial for your company's growth; they'll boost your resume and your network, too. Starting or continuing with Salesforce DevOps training this year will establish you as indispensable to your team, and expand your network as colleagues from across your business reach out for support.

Making life easier for Saleforce DevOps experts

The rapid increase in the popularity of Salesforce DevOps has reshaped the job market. With companies requiring more Salesforce DevOps experts, as well as wanting to hold on to the ones already in house, it’s pushed businesses into looking into extra ways to improve life for developers in a bid to find and retain talent.

This includes the addition of no-code/low-code tools and a focus on automating as many processes as possible. The addition of seamless and simple low-code processes reduces the number of specialised experts to work on certain tasks, reduces the number of human errors and frees up developers to take on more rewarding projects.

All in all, we're looking at a job that's more fulfilling for those who have the skills to do it. If that sounds like the direction you want to take in 2022, check out DevOps Launchpad, our free, easy-to-navigate learning hub for all things Salesforce DevOps.
