What is Salesforce Lightning?
Lightning is Salesforce embracing the modern look and feel with numerous out-of-the-box features and tools bundled together to streamline your business processes. At the center of this modern interface is the Salesforce Lightning UI that overhauls everything from modules to processes to make your experience intuitive and the interpretation of data easier. It optimizes business processes by bringing accurate and detailed data to the forefront and generates better insights on service operations and sales pipelines. This updated UI, integrated with Salesforce Cloud, gives your contact points all the necessary tools to provide exceptional customer service and drive customer satisfaction.
Interactive Tabs make tasks easier to manage with a drop-down feature that presents details on the same page. The Activity Timeline shows a comprehensive overview of the past and future and makes interpretation of workflows a lot easier. Past tasks, activities, and events can be viewed in order with the Activity Timeline. Salesforce Assistant is another mainstay of Lightning, it presents insights and helpful tips based on your records to progress deals.

Salesforce Lightning vs Salesforce Classic
Despite all the exceptional features that come with Salesforce Lightning Design, Salesforce Classic is still the go-to infrastructure for numerous organizations. This is due to a number of reasons such as the disruption to business flows a transition would cause and the fact that Lightning is still a work in progress. The added costs of a Salesforce Migration collectively make Salesforce Classic a better fit for large businesses.
Solution: Salesforce Lightning + Classic
In light of this conundrum, numerous organizations are using a combination of Salesforce Lightning and Classic. Salesforce allows users to switch back and forth with ease to make testing and migration easier. Numerous Sales and Service objects are not supported in Lightning along with apps mentioned earlier, and Performance Chart, Assistant and Activity Timeline are not present in Classic, you can switch to Classic for the former and work on Lightning for the rest. Salesforce has maintained that Lightning is the future and sooner or later your organization is going to need to switch. Start early and consult with Salesforce experts for a selective migration at your own pace.
