The Flosum Experience

Salesforce is a fantastic platform for quickly building and updating applications. However, Salesforce lacks enterprise-grade application lifecycle management capabilities required to ensure proper governance and change management.

Unlike most applications in the marketplace, Flosum is much more than data or metadata migration. It is a full Application Lifecycle Management solution.

What makes Flosum different?

We know there are other options out there when it comes to Application Lifecycle Management on Salesforce, but there are some serious considerations for what makes us different and sets us apart from the rest:

  • The only natively built solution, built completely within Salesforce, built completely for Salesforce.
  • The only solution currently approved for government use.
  • Flosum offers support for the greatest variety of metadata amongst our competition.
  • With Flosum, you get a full lifecycle management solution, coupled with compliance and governance reporting, audit trail logs, and a personal Success Management team that is dedicated to your success.
  • No additional pricing, no hidden costs. It's all included.

What does it do?

It starts with managing the following: application requirements, environment management, release management processes, version control and continuous integration and testing.


The Typical Deployment Experience

As developers deploy changes from org-to-org, over a period, they create hundreds of ANT scripts and/or Changesets. It is difficult to keep track of who made the changes, approved the changes and deployed the changes, etc. There is a complete loss of visibility, manageability and traceability.


Where the madness ends

Flosum sits at the heart of your Salesforce ecosystem and orchestrates all the changes across the ecosystem. It works like a traffic cop, and ensures that developers don't overwrite each other's changes. In addition to that, it provides full visibility and traceability into the changes made (such as who made the changes, when the changes were done and what are the details of the changes); this allows the development madness to end, and structured organization to begin, potentially saving your company time and hundreds of thousands of dollars in wasted development costs and costly delays.


What Flosum is

Flosum is one of the most robust, easy to learn Salesforce Enterprise edition Lifecycle Application Management tools. Although it is another Salesforce organization, this org is provided by Flosum as part of the licensing. We take the hassle out of the experience.

Flosum is a not a sandbox or a developer org. The Flosum org is an Enterprise edition org which runs on production hardware.

Along with the org, Flosum provides Salesforce platform licenses for each of the users who will be using Flosum. This gives users the ability to extend and modify Flosum as required.

All the components for the solution: a separate org, Salesforce platform licenses and Flosum licenses which are provided by Flosum.
