shutterstock_388662271_downloaded-image-52Businesses using the Salesforce platform often struggle to find talented administrators. The struggle, in part, is about perception. Many hiring agents mistakenly believe Salesforce administrators and developers are interchangeable. In certain instances, qualified talent can perform both roles, coding and managing the platform.

An administrator with a knowledge of Apex, the Salesforce coding language, is helpful, but the best administrators are not your standard IT guy or gal. The best administrators function more like business analysts, evaluating complex systems and data to create solutions. The best administrators work closely with executives to maximize ROI.
