Most DevOps teams have intricate mental models to ensure software development of the utmost quality. Communication is the key in all of these instances and it just so happens that a normal or social communication channel.
Some of the common challenges faced by DevOps teams in terms of production and development include:

4. Production challenges
While there are many more challenges as such, the above-mentioned are the four more pressing ones.
Salesforce for DevOps
DevOps, when combined with Salesforce, gives you a unique weapon for development and production unlike any other.
