    • Exception Handling ( in design )
      • Improved logs @ log messages
        • Verbose external logging
        • Condensed Internal logging

      • External Logging Endpoints
        • API – JSON / CSV

    • Currently there is little in the way of retry / timeout handling, in part due to Salesforce and Apex restrictions on script execution time and heap.
    • Phase I – Improve logging / monitoring / notification
