Can I have a show of hands – Ok who loves Salesforce Lightning? It’s pretty cool what you can do in Lightning isn’t it!!
Now keep you hand up if you have considered the migration from Salesforce Classic to Lightning? How many of you have actually made the move? It was pretty easy wasn’t it? Well the reality is for most organisations and customers it isn’t easy and there is a lot that you need to consider before making the move.
During Dreamforce I was chatting with some fellow Salesforce MVP’s about the migration and how you need to plan and manage the migration. During that conversation, and one in particular with Rachel Rogers, we were saying wouldn’t it be great if we had some guidance to ensure the migration was a success. That’s when Rachel said – “Hang on! We’re doing that right now. Why don’t we publish a blog series about the journey and how you can manage it”.
Welcome to The (Salesforce) Lightning Chronicles!! This series will provide you with insights into how to manage your migration to Lightning. As we proceed through the journey the blog will become more technical but it starts with planning and the change management elements that are often missed in most projects.
But first let me introduce Rachel.
Rachel Rogers says she doesn’t just think outside the box; she lost the box entirely 10 years ago when she started working with Salesforce.
Rachel is a Certified Salesforce Administrator, Houston Salesforce User Group Leader, Creator of the HUG Gives Back Program, Dreamforce Speaker, and three-year Salesforce MVP. Rachel enjoys thinking about ‘what ifs’ and turning them into tangible solutions. Her passion is helping organisations leverage technology and training to enhance their business processes.
In addition to all the above Rachel is also the Sr. IT Manager at BMC Software overseeing their Global Salesforce Roadmap, Salesforce Governance and Release Schedules.
We hope you find the series useful and it helps you as you migrate and start using Lightning. We will be publishing a new post every two weeks to share our Lightning journey.
