Salesforce and SAP Integration

I was engaged from the discovery phase and the client requested my presence on site with the main stakeholders until the final phase of the project—where the system was in use—and to provide support for any potential issue.

This project simplified the sales order process where manual entries for orders, contracts, and service orders were entered twice in Salesforce and SAP. It simplified the submission of orders using synchronous requests to SAP and if there are any issues with integrations, then it was all reported to the end-users immediately.

The system was in use for two years and then it was extended to customer and materials modules. These modules enabled the system to submit customers from Salesforce to SAP. At the same time, it engaged 2-way synchronizations—with updates in SAP on materials and customers updates corresponding data points in Salesforce.

My role on this project was as the system architect and product owner. I led a team of three developers throughout the implementation process.

Experience Cloud with Mobile Publisher

I designed a single-page application built with Experience Cloud/LWC and published the Flutter mobile wrapper app to the iOS and Android stores.

The main challenge was making the screens responsive on all phone devices following the original look and feel.

This approach simplified the scalability of the mobile applications by making sure that any improvements could be made from a single location.

Experience Cloud Community to Private Package

The client needed a custom community built with legacy Salesforce technologies (Visualforce pages and components).

I led the migration process of old code into an unlocked package to redistribute the product to other Salesforce instances, implemented CI processes, created the mobile application (single-page application), and worked with mobile developers to create the front-end app (instead of using Salesforce Mobile Publisher).

As the solution architect on the project, I led a team of 10-14 and released the apps to the iOS and Android stores.

Service Cloud — Internet of Things

The goal was to build a system for the vending machine that creates a case in Salesforce notifying tech support of any issues.

I worked with external vendors to create the integration between Salesforce and IoT Servers and established two-way data synchronization.

Various data points had to flow between two environments; therefore, we implemented a system for sending data from assets to the cloud on an hourly basis.

I was a product owner on this project and worked with a team of 2-3 developers.

Experience Cloud Implementation

I worked on the implementation of a complex rostering process for a local YMCA organization using Salesforce Community Cloud (Experience Cloud), where students and parents were selected based on large sets of criteria.

I led a team of four developers through the custom implementation process. The project was built using Aura Components (in 2017/2018), and the selection process for students and parents simplified the rostering process significantly.
