Our team has compiled the top reasons holding companies back from Salesforce lightning migrations along with solutions to make it work.
Can you remember what you were doing six years ago? When you think back, 2015 seems like a blast from the past. In that time, we’ve developed and improved self-driving cars, we saw Microsoft release the first Surface laptops, Apple removed the headphone jack, VR became widely available, and we watched a private company take astronauts to the International Space Station.
In that time, too, thousands of companies have migrated from Salesforce Classic to the Salesforce Lightning Experience.
Salesforce has made it enticing to move to Lightning. Custom home pages, an app builder, better navigation, and a host of other features that increase sales and service team efficiency and optimized operations.
Despite the benefits, some companies lagged behind in moving to the new platform. Salesforce moved from enticing features to migration enablement, providing a readiness check tool and a simple “Turn on Lightning Experience” button for users.
Still, some organizations haven’t migrated. There are many reasons - some of them revolving around the business, processes, and people. Other reasons include technical challenges that are causing companies to drag their feet on Lightning migration.
If your business is still weighing the risks vs. reward of moving to the Lightning Experience, it’s a good bet that at least some of the hesitation is related to technical challenges. If that’s the case, you’re not alone. Here are the top five technical obstacles businesses face when migrating from Salesforce Classic to Lightning.
One of the strengths of both the Salesforce Classic and Lightning platforms is the ability to customize it to meet your business's unique needs. Everything from homepage layout to objects to process flows can be set up precisely the way your business needs it to be.
However, when moving from Classic to Lightning, these customizations are more like an albatross around your neck. With feature redundancy and performance issues and other issues being potential challenges, these customizations that were once a benefit can now become a burden.
