At Lab5, we love to align ourselves with people and organizations who are excellent at what they do. That’s why we’re so excited to announce a strategic partnership with Copado.
Copado is an end-to-end DevOps tool that unites Salesforce admins, developers, and architects. It’s built 100% natively on the Lightning Platform, and aims to help Salesforce teams deliver faster, more frequent, and lower-risk releases.
At Lab5, our team works tirelessly to bring our clients solutions that help them get the most out of Salesforce. With our powers combined, we’ll be deploying best-in-class releases, more efficient processes, and happier teams.
What’s DevOps, and why is it important?
If you are not working on the technical side of your business, you may not be familiar with DevOps. Put simply: it’s the combination of tools, people, and processes in the development lifecycle that helps your features get developed, deployed, and released.
Solid DevOps is fundamental to a successful Salesforce implementation (and really, any software development) because it organizes and streamlines a ton of moving pieces, so you get better results.
How will Lab5 and Copado work together?
- Bringing Copado to Lab5 clients. With our partnership, we will provide the best of Copado to our managed service clients. That means streamlined agile planning, accelerated releases, and better measuring and monitoring with 360 DevOps Analytics. Teams can see value in weeks, not months or years.
- Partnering on New Implementations. Our team of Copado-certified experts will work with new Copado customers to get their instance installed and configured. We’ll carefully partner with clients who will best benefit from Lab5’s specific blend of industry experience and Salesforce domain expertise. That means that we’ll have the best team to deliver it no matter what the client requirements.
How will this partnership impact Lab5 clients?
For our current clients, this partnership is good news. Copado allows us to implement faster and more frequent releases, which means building and iterating on the features you need will happen even quicker. You’ll also have even better visibility into the work we’re doing for you. From dashboards to value stream maps to other possible integrations, awareness and understanding is now at your fingertips.
This partnership also means better forecasting. With more development capacity and downstream resource planning, we’ll be able to help you project your needs and results, far into the future.
And, with more automated code reviews, test executions, and quality scanning, Lab5 + Copado are lowering risk across the board for our clients.
