Data Migration and Data quality is one of the difficulties faced while implementing salesforce. To deal with this it requires a separate approach, strategy and implementation team. Dealing with user mapping, duplicate data, security, cleaning up data requires considerable time and efficient team.

Salesforce is a huge CRM Platform with many point click functionalities but some companies find difficulties and challenges while Customizing Salesforce platform according to the business and individual needs.

Integrating Salesforce with third party systems is one of the challenges faced by salesforce implementation. Not having a clear scope like not identifying business needs, having duplicate or bad data which will cause data mismatch between different applications, by misunderstanding real time integration with importing and exporting data into salesforce with other applications some of them will remain out of sync with real time changes. To overcome these challenges, one should have a clear scope and budget while integrating salesforce with third party systems, setup right data validation rules while salesforce integration flows are executed and understanding real time integrations problems accurately.

Training users is one of the most important difficulties while implementing salesforce in your organization.
