How to Manage Dependency Injection within Salesforce

If you don’t know what Dependency Injection is, why it is required, which problem does it help us resolve, and how Dependency Injection is used in Salesforce, then don’t worry; by the end of this article, you will be clear of all your doubts.

Dependency InjectionWhat is Dependency Injection (DI)?

Dependency Injection is a design pattern that provides inversion of control; it is used for breaking tight coupling between 2 objects. It is an alternative approach to binding two objects loosely. 

Let us understand this with the help of an example.

Why is Dependency Injection required?

Let us consider the example of the client consuming the services provided by a server.

Typically, the server would be instantiated by the client as below:

Server s = new Service ();

s.Print();

Yet, the above code introduces a dependency between the Client and Server, and the client is tightly coupled with the server, as seen in the below diagram. 

You can see the implications of this dependency by trying to delete the Service, which is not possible as the client uses it.

So, what do you think are the issues with the above type of binding?

  1. The flexibility is reduced
  2. It is difficult to make changes
  3. It is not easy to reuse the code

DependencySo, we prefer to use Dependency Injection for flexibility, extensibility, and reusability of code.

Let us now see how Dependency Injection is managed in Salesforce;

In Salesforce, there are two types of dependencies possibilities.

  1. Introduced due to coding
  2. Dependency between metadata formed by using declarative tools (process, flow, layout, and actions)

Dependency injection helps in forming dependencies at runtime instead of explicitly during development. It aims to break the dependence between the calling code and how an instance is created. 

In the above example, we saw that the client had access to the Server implementation. The solution would be to invert the control, such that the client does not know about the server implementation details. 

The use of the “new” operator needs to be avoided to use Dependency injection, since the usage of a “new” operator requires packaging and deploying the Server implementation along with the client, resulting in loss of extensibility.

The goal of Dependency Injection is to eliminate the need for the calling code needing to know how an instance is obtained; it only needs to know how to use it. Through dependency injection, multiple different implementations could be packaged and deployed.

A dependency exists in the above example because the compiler needed to know the Service class of the client. 

The compiler needed to check whether the Service class compiles; the aim is to remove this dependency. This is possible if we load the Service class at runtime. An injector class would be required to load and provide the required service implementation class. 

The need for an Interface. To achieve loose coupling, we need to design the code to interact with an interface rather than an implementation. The implementation of the interface would vary from customer to customer. 

Dependency Injection uses configuration and code to dynamically determine the implementation used, thus decoupling dependencies from where they are used, as seen in the diagram.

Dependency managementTo Summarize

We saw what Dependency Injection is, the issues observed if Dependency injection is not used, the different types of Dependency Injection, and how to break down tight coupling and replace it with loose coupling using Dependency Injection within Salesforce.

The pros and cons of Dependency Injection are as below:

Pros: 

  1. Breaks the tight-coupling as it causes issues with reusing, updating, and maintaining the code.
  2. Adds support for many optional implementations that can be selected at runtime without code modifications.

Cons:

  1. Introduces complexity in the architecture as it is challenging to identify implementations corresponding to associated calls.
  2. Difficult to troubleshoot in case something breaks at execution. Delay in identifying runtime issues.

SMEs

Why should SMEs opt for Salesforce?

Gone are the days of tardy pitches over innumerable inconvenient sales calls that struggle to retain information and customers, let alone bring in new leads. The world of sales needs a digital transformation into an efficient system where each cog has a purpose.

Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) rely heavily on sales teams to pitch their services and/or products to new customers or update existing customers with better deals. Despite all their efforts, the reason why sales teams often fall shorter than their original goals is because of the lack of an organized, flexible, scalable structure to support their hard work. In a world that runs before it walks, an SME simply can’t afford to lose customers due to the absence of a streamlined sales process.

The CRM approach

CRM (Customer Relationship Management) tools allow the sales team to manage all customer-related data at one place, to be retrieved anytime, anywhere, and from any device. Whether you’re making an urgent call or pursuing a game-changing lead on-the-go, a powerful CRM has your back.

Process automation

Software solutions automate critical parts of the sale process to ensure quick responses and better lead generation. Imagine an automated process that takes care of lead distribution, lead prioritization, responding to FAQs, analyzing reports, and getting sales alerts! With a digital transformation, all of this is possible and more.

Better security

The conventional approach to sales includes loosely recorded information, loss of leads from previous sales reps, disgruntled employees who turn rogue, and a vulnerable database. A CRM software solution provides a more secure option for crucial data.

Why Salesforce?

Salesforce the #1 CRM in the world, is the perfect CRM solution for all your needs that integrates companies and customers on a singular forum. While most of the small businesses wonder if Salesforce is for bigger enterprises, you can actually implement it to start your CRM journey. Certainly, you need to perform some customizations, integrations, and configurations to meet your specific business goals, but with the right Salesforce partner, you can achieve what you really need.

Sales process optimization & streamlined customer service are extremely crucial for any company, and SMEs are no exceptions. Moreover, SMEs are more concerned over their customer service and sales ROI, and using a platform like Salesforce will certainly help them transform their needs.

Salesforce’s new Einstein innovation: Tracking & Protecting Great White Sharks in Southern California

After reading the title, you must be wondering ‘What’s this?’ What is the connection between tracking sharks and Salesforce? But you read it right. Some of Salesforce’s Einstein team members have collaborated with US Santa Barbara’s Benioff Ocean Initiative and are using AI to analyze drone footage in near real-time to track the movement of the great white sharks close to the shore of Southern California. This AI application will certainly help to keep the beaches safer.  

We have seen some amazing AI use cases in recent times. Big data along with enhanced algorithms have taken AI out from research labs to drive some innovative and real-time applications. To name a few of the recent AI incredible applications are the hurricane forecasting system for the Caribbean, personalized classroom lessons, and best lead prediction for sales reps. 

The recent application to track white sharks will certainly help to protect their quickly diminishing population. The significant increase in the great white shark sightings near the popular surfing areas in Santa Barbara had grabbed the attention of the local community as well as the scientists. Benioff Ocean Initiative Director and UCSB professor Douglas McCauley teamed up with Salesforce Director of Research Michael “MJ” Jones, Salesforce Chief Scientist Richard Socher and San Diego State Associate Professor of Computer Science Xiaobai Liu to find out a new way to identify the presence of sharks in the coastal waters using Salesforce Analytics & AI.

Salesforce R&D team then leveraged AI and train the Einstein Vision algorithm which is being used for visual search, brand detection, image recognition, and product identification. With the help of Einstein Vision, they analyzed the drone video in real-time to identify the shark movements without physically tagging them or touching the water. The project was called ‘Project SharkEye’. 

Also Read: Image Recognition with the New Einstein Vision

Salesforce AI team worked with UCSB researchers and gathered the video by flying drones along a 10-mile stretch of beach. Einstein Vision was then taught to spot white sharks in the mighty blue ocean. However, to get real-time insights, computer vision was required. Training the algorithm was not an easy task. Einstein Vision has to learn to differentiate between shark species, such as a leopard shark and a great white. It had to rule out non-shark objects such as a large floating piece of kelp with a shark-like shape. Also, the algorithm has to learn which is a new shark or the same one. With time, the algorithm got smarter. 

Salesforce also wanted to help the local community who were getting their livelihood from the ocean and the tourists. The shops, the schools, local businesses, lifeguards, etc. Salesforce lately offered Field Service Lightning mobile apps to the field workers such as lifeguards, marine biologists, surf teachers so that they can use the app for onsite job management, real-time collaboration, and access information. The app will involve the local community in the white shark tracking and protecting mission as they can avail of all the information using the Lightning mobile app such as how many sharks were spotted and where. 

Project SharkEye was not only one of the all-time great AI use case, but also it allowed Salesforce to be helpful to the community. This initiative brought technology to a place where it was never been in the past.

Salesforce Introduced Einstein Search to Personalize CRM Search Results with AI

Today’s world is more digitally connected than ever. People use online search engines to get information. Search engines often try to provide accurate results in order to make search results more consistent. Users also expect a fast, reliable and relevant search experience, However, at times it becomes a little complex for them to get accurate results. This becomes even more complex while search happens using a CRM. It takes multiple clicks, interfaces, and hassles to get correct results. That’s a big worry, isn’t it? The search should be seamless and must give you highly relevant results quickly. To improve CRM search experience & productivity with AI, Salesforce introduced ‘Einstein Search‘ which is an intelligent search that is highly efficient, personal, accurate & insightful.

Enterprise search is completely different from consumer search. There are multiple challenges involved in enterprise searches. One of the biggest challenges is a diverse user base with a different set of goals. A sales rep will try to search for recent leads while a service agent will search closed customer cases. Another challenge is the different nature of data. When an enterprise uses a CRM, the functionalities and search results depend on their data and data will differ from company to company. So it becomes challenging for a standard CRM to give accurate search results. 

Introducing Einstein Search

In order to help enterprises overcome these complex search challenges, Salesforce has introduced Einstein Search which will improve & personalize CRM searches leveraging AI and fundamentally accelerate customer success. 

Personalized Results

As we have already mentioned above that a diverse user base has a different set of goals, they use CRM searches for various purposes. Einstein Search drives highly personalized results for every user. Each search result is highly tailored to offer the results that matter to you. Einstein Search utilizes innovative data mining & machine learning techniques to personalize search results. 

Relevant Results

Enterprise users expect highly seamless search experience using while using a CRM. Einstein Search offers highly relevant search results with the help of AI. For example, if a sales rep searches open opportunities in London, Einstein Search interprets that query and show open opportunities in London. The result retrieval process is extremely fast and accurate. 

Actionable Search Bar

Einstein Search not only offers fast & accurate search results within the CRM, but it also helps a user save 50% clicks and page loading time of most frequently used tasks. For example, instead of searching for a contact, clicking into their record, and then manually attaching the contact to an opportunity, you can take these same actions just by using the enhanced Einstein Search bar. 

When can you use Einstein Search? 

Einstein Search is currently in pilot and is already providing value for some of the top brands like iHeartMedia and MightyHive. It will be generally available next year for orgs with an Unlimited, Enterprise, or Performance Edition with 150+ active licenses for Sales or Service Cloud.
