Salesforce Testing and Deployment
Data migration in Salesforce involves transferring data from one Salesforce instance to another. This could be necessary when a company is migrating from an older version of Salesforce to a newer one, or when merging multiple Salesforce instances into one.
To ensure successful testing and deployment, developers typically use various tools and techniques, such as automated testing,
continuous integration, and version control. These processes help identify and fix any issues before releasing the application to end-users. Additionally,
developers must follow best practices and adhere to Salesforce's security and compliance guidelines to ensure data privacy and protection.
