8. Last but not least: Salesforce Lightning offers better security
Free of charge within Lightning is the LockerService function. It separates Lightning components so they can communicate with each other. This helps protect the platform from malicious data. Salesforce Classic does not offer any features that can be compared to it.
If all these major Lightning Experience enhancements and new functionalities are not enough to motivate you to switch from Classic, remember that delaying the migration too long can have a significant negative impact on your organization.
You take the risk of functionality loss due to a lack of updates. Classic hasn’t had major updates for a while now and it looks like it won’t be on the Salesforces’ agenda in the future. Salesforce even stops the Salesforce for Outlook connector. This app will retire in December 2020 when Lightning Experience ends its extensive support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 11.
All new Salesforce innovations happen only in Lightning Experience.
– Salesforce –
According to Bluewolf’s State of Salesforce 2020 report, 45% of organizations already use Lightning Experience. This means that in a while there will be less online community support available, while you may experience more compatibility issues and loss of functionality at the same time. Migrating to Salesforce Lightning seems time consuming and expensive. But if you migrate to Salesforce Lightning before problems arise, it can save your business unnecessary time, money, and hassle in the long run.
