Architecture & Strategy
Stability, Security, and Scalability are top of mind for all companies regardless of size or industry. Will Salesforce scale with the demand of new requirements and projects? Is the data secure? Are there legacy features that will be disabled or unsupported soon? Can I accelerate development cycles? Do we need a governance team?
Salesforce has Evolved - has Your Business?
Salesforce is no longer a simple, cloud based web page for Sales Teams to submit new Leads to manage and track Opportunities. Salesforce is now an application framework that goes way beyond basic configurations and simple "point-and-click" features.

WHAT IS A HEALTHY SALESFORCE ORG?
Salesforce Technical Architects make up only 1% of the overall Salesforce Talent supply, making it difficult for companies to find and hire, not to mention they are more expensive than other less seasoned roles.
The companies with the biggest budgets are able to attract top talent - while small and mid-size companies forgo these critical roles and hire Salesforce Developers to fill the gap instead.
This may work in the near-term, however it is a recipe for Technical Debt going forward.
