Staring into the face of full-system data migration efforts is not for the faint of heart – especially when it comes to configure, price, quote software and the larger quote-to-cash pipeline.
But, if you’re operating out of a legacy CPQ system like Oracle, you’re living on borrowed time.
You can trust us on that.
Our founders created BigMachines in 2000, which was then purchased by Oracle in 2013. While Oracle was undeniably one of the best CPQ software options on the market at the time it emerged, it just hasn’t managed to keep pace with recent advancement or acceleration.
Between proprietary scripting, tedious administration, and difficulty extending to omnichannel environments, teams are in need of a more modern solution.
And shoppers are taking note.
In the current market, sellers, administrators and buyers alike are strongly gravitating toward environments that make their lives easier, and accommodate a higher level of adaptability, customization and scalability than we’ve seen before.
Salesforce-centric architecture has proven itself to be the best bet to support sophisticated selling practices, while reducing both processing time and maintenance efforts to the tune of 40% and 80%, respectively, in conjunction with Logik.io.
Our attribute-based headless configurator is native to the Salesforce platform, and supercharges the already notable capacities of Salesforce CPQ via advanced configuration logic, hyperfast performance speed, and guided selling integrations.
Do you know what differentiates attribute-based configuration from product-based configuration? More so, do you know why you should be leveraging the ABCs of attribute-based configuration to benefit your buyers? Our comprehensive Configuration Guide has all the answers you need, and then some, available for free at https://learn.logik.io/configuration-guide.
The combination of Logik.io’s unparalleled commerce logic engine and Salesforce CPQ creates a powerhouse tech stack that is dynamic enough to accommodate both ever-shifting consumerized buyer preferences and regular supply chain inconsistencies.
And now, you can migrate the entirety of your product rules, product structure, product options, data tables, commerce process and more from Oracle to Salesforce with the Logik.io Lightspeed Migration Program.
With this automated program, you can seamlessly transition to our environment in just a matter of weeks, helping you to:
- Simplify and unify your data models under the Salesforce umbrella
- Dramatically reduce CPQ maintenance requirements and costs
- Experience better performance and usability across the board
- Eliminate complex integration processes and ramp up fast
We thought you might be. So, let us break down exactly how this program works to help you sell more, sell faster, and maintain less.
Rule and Attribute Reusability
Reusability is the key to expediting complicated technical processes.
And because of the less-common attribute-based configurator that both Logik.io and Oracle are built around, there is a direct channel through which elements of configuration design and schema can be reused and/or copied across systems.
This means you don’t have to spend precious time recreating what has already been architected in Oracle – you just get to see it import into the Salesforce-based environment. And, once in, our commerce logic engine is then triggered to deploy further reusability features like the recently released “Sets.”
See how we leverage our proprietary “Sets” to reduce manual data requirements and input during internal configuration at https://www.logik.io/blog/introducing-sets.
On top of the shared configurator bridging us and Oracle, we are able to offer an intelligent solving engine – recently upgraded to enhance determination and exclusion rules, product actions, and message types – that negates the need for rule ordering or hierarchies. This further speeds up the rule transfer process, putting you in prime position to minimize downtime.
Traditional migration processes heavily rely on person-led efforts and repetitive manual input. With high risk for human error and an even higher expenditure of resources needed to make it happen, such a process does not make sense when looking at an out-of-Oracle migration scenario.
Instead, Logik.io has constructed an API-first approach to reduce manual legwork for administrators, accelerate migration and configuration setups, and ensure a faster, more accurate translation of data.
This automated setup is more aligned with the larger ethos of a Salesforce-centric tech stack – focusing on how to leverage technical advancement for the benefit of the individuals that keep everything running smoothly and the buyers looking for the right shop to patronize.
System Integration Partners
There’s an old adage that says: if you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
We’ve struck the happy medium between going fast and going together, as evidenced by our renowned network of more than forty system integration partners, all of whom have been hand-selected and personally trained by Logik.io subject matter experts to migrate your unique configuration setups.
With decades of combined experience between them all, our SI partners fully embody the Logik.io core values of leading with innovation and keeping our customers first.
Logik.io is specifically engineered to accept data models from other configurators, thanks in no small part to our Matrix Loader technology.
Our Matrix Loader allows for options, rules, and tables to be easily loaded from Google Sheets or Microsoft Excel with automatic data recognition in a matter of mere minutes.
If you’re looking to migrate data out of Oracle, or any other configurator, you can download said data as an XML or CSV file, which perfectly integrates into our Matrix Loader. You can even trigger this process from a third-party system, or middleware, if you don’t want to get directly involved.
We have a 1:1 mapping structure so your Oracle data elements can directly translate to Logik.io objects.
Oracle product lines, families and models translate natively through migration into Logik.io Blueprints, while configurable attributes and product options are spun through the Matrix Loader to end up as Logik.io Fields.
Similarly, all of the product rules, recommendations, constraints, etc., lifted out of Oracle’s architecture anchor themselves within the Logik.io tree of product rules – determination, exclusion, or visibility.
Internal data tables, saved as CSV files which then convert through the Matrix Loader via Excel or Google Sheets, populate perfectly within our own proprietary table structure.
Finally, key components of the commerce process like quote headers and line items are able to be extricated from Oracle and rehomed within the Salesforce Revenue Cloud Quote Line Item Editor for all the customization you require.
With Logik.io and Excel alone, you can create a full end-to-end configuration setup through our Matrix Loader in less than 5 minutes. See for yourself at Logik.io Matrix Loader Demo- End-to-End Configuration Setup in Under 5 Minutes
