New Spanning Backup for Salesforce Features Save Significant Time, Money and Resources in Data and Metadata Restoration

AUSTIN, TX – February 07, 2018 — / — Spanning Cloud Apps LLC, a leading provider of SaaS data protection, today announced that it has launched major enhancements to Spanning Backup for Salesforce, including automated metadata restore of 10 metadata types within and between Salesforce organizations. With these enhancements, Spanning deepens its leadership in enterprise data protection for Salesforce.

Salesforce is a critical application for tens of thousands of organizations across the globe; it contains information vital for day-to-day operations and key business processes are developed and executed using Salesforce metadata customizations. The loss of this data—or metadata—can cripple an organization, impacting revenue forecast reports, active sales opportunities, support SLAs and more. With Spanning Backup for Salesforce, administrators and developers can reduce the risk of data and metadata loss by easily automating backup and restoration of critical Salesforce data and metadata.

“Our customers and prospects are growing their investment in Salesforce, migrating more and more business functions, processes and data onto the platform. Because of this growth, administrators and developers are expected to rapidly build and deploy new functionality for reporting and BI needs, business process execution and custom application development,” said Mat Hamlin, VP of Products, Spanning. “Our recent innovations help administrators and developers accelerate development cycles by providing granular control through directive sandbox seeding, reducing the time and effort needed to build scratch orgs with preset metadata and data. By continuing to deliver new value to our customers, we’ve maintained our 80 percent year-over-year growth in Spanning Backup for Salesforce.”

Additional enhancements to Spanning Backup for Salesforce include sandbox seeding with options for granular anonymization of data, fine-grained controls over the restoration of data, and metadata comparison. Customers can also compare metadata between two different instances, identify changes in metadata and, if needed, roll back metadata in case they run into any issues before or after going live with new customizations.

“Our clients’ Salesforce customizations—metadata, like reports and dashboards—help provide the information they need to grow their donor base and their mission,” said Spanning partner Art Ordoqui, Chief Customer Success and Partnerships Officer, HandsOn Connect Cloud Solutions. “With Spanning Backup for Salesforce’s ability to automatically restore metadata, we can better help them protect business continuity, which lets us all focus on the work that matters—meeting their mission.”

Most often, the responsibility of recovering lost data and metadata falls to a company’s Salesforce Admin. If a field is deleted in error, for example, the admin must first recreate the field with the correct properties and then re-populate the field with the lost values. Depending on the complexity of the Salesforce organization, it can take hours or even days of manual intervention to restore. With Spanning’s new features, even a junior admin can easily recover, not only data, but metadata—automatically, completely, and accurately.

These enhancements to Spanning Backup for Salesforce are now available to all new and existing Spanning customers at no extra cost. For more information, please visit
