Ha ha ha joking.. its combination of many real stories of my previous projects and few readers might be from my team itself 😉 . Leave comment my brave team mates if you are able to co-relate !!!
I tried to summaries as much as possibilities about governor limit errors and way to get out of it. Most of scenario described below may not be the first choice of Technical Architects however because of many reasons like budget, resource skill, tools available and compliance, bad decision could be taken which causes ripple effect on Salesforce scalibility.
Before start, I would encourage readers to leave comment on post and let everyone know in this suspenseful story, did you catch governor limits and Solution already before its exposed ? In this blog post, answers are mostly in invisible/white font which would not be seen until you highlight it. Its for few readers who don’t want spoilers.
After working on multiple Salesforce implementation project as an Architect, its time to share what I learned from those implementations and would strongly suggest to be considered before designing any “Salesforce Integration”.
Below image shows “integration mind mapping” used by me. I use it to consider some major aspects while discussing integration approaches with enterprise architects in various meetings. This image is very high level however if you think some more points to be considered or have some other thoughts on same, please share.
1. Data Compliance
Lets start with Compliance part first. It is possible that client has confidential data and doesn’t want to move it to Cloud. In that case, we can expose existing web application of Client using some Salesforce products like “Canvas” or “Lightning Connect”. For Lightning Connect, data needs to be available on DMZ layer however for Canvas it can exist on Intranet and therefore end users can access data only within office, providing flexibility of cloud and security of intranet.
