A Day in the Life of a Salesforce Architect

You start off the day reviewing an application feature design from one of your teams. You check that the design follows best practices, considers the user experience, and meets the business goals—all while being technically feasible, scalable, and maintainable.
Next up, respond to a request from a potential client. You look up documentation, review previous work for similar clients, and generate solution overviews, proof-of-concept designs/applications while gathering initial system landscapes or project documents.
After Lunch
You run a discovery workshop for a new client to uncover their business challenges and goals.
Late Afternoon
After reviewing the results of your discovery workshop, a colleague asks you to review a presentation deck for a client. You review and add your suggestions to the deck keeping in mind what is feasible from a time and technology standpoint.
