“Preparing for the Certified Technical Architect (CTA) Review Board: Insights from Salesforce Experts”

We recently had a great meet-up with The Bridge Search and Architecting for Innovations next round of Lunch and Learn.

Salesforce architecture is a constantly evolving field, and earning the Salesforce Certified Technical Architect (CTA) certification is like winning an Olympic gold medal for Salesforce pros. At the “Architecting for Innovation Lunch and Learn” meet-up on May 3rd, 2023, Salesforce experts Gourav Sood and Satyashil Awadhare shared tips and tricks on preparing for the CTA Review Board, offering valuable insights to those pursuing this certification.

Gourav Sood, a Salesforce Certified Technical Architect with a staggering 19 certifications and 16 years of consulting experience across the globe, and Satyashil Awadhare, a Salesforce CTA with 16 certifications specialising in leading enterprise digital transformations, have a deep understanding of Salesforce architecture intricacies. They also host the popular “Salesforce Architecture Talk” podcast, where they discuss all things Salesforce.

The most crucial takeaway from the session was the importance of aligning technology decisions with business objectives. It ensures that clients appreciate the value of Salesforce products and frameworks, which they also discussed.
