Data migration in Salesforce can be more scalable, repeatable, and reliable. And we’re going to make it happen.
That was the challenge the team at Prodly set itself. And with its Fall 2017 release, Prodly’s introducing new features, core enhancements, and upgrades. It has now evolved from a single-user tool for migrating relational data to a robust platform for complex data migration.
How to Make Data Migration More Scalable
Upon its release in 2015, Prodly instantly became the most powerful tool for automatically migrating relational data between Salesforce organizations. Fast, easy, and efficient, it cut data migration time from as much as 12 hours to as little as 30 minutes.
At the heart of Prodly’s success was its ability to maintain complex parent-child relationships during the migration process. This eliminated the need to perform extra time- and money-wasting steps that were repetitive and prone to human error.
Now, with the Fall ’17 Release, Prodly has elevated itself to new heights. It’s become the premier platform for managing Salesforce data migration for complex applications such as Salesforce CPQ and FinancialForce.
Already fast, secure, and efficient, Prodly’s new features and upgrades support a more scalable, reliable, and repeatable data migration process. This makes the platform a natural fit for high-volume systems integrators and Salesforce users with large development teams.
Centrally-Controlled Deployment Architecture
With Prodly’s new centrally-controlled deployment, you only have to install it in a single central Salesforce organization. From the central org, you control all your deployments. You can connect to all your organizations and using any of them as a source or destination.
The new streamlined architecture saves time and effort, eliminating the need to perform repeated installs. For Salesforce customers with large development teams and for SIs working with multiple source orgs, time saved translates into money saved. This allows teams to reallocate those work hours to other more important tasks.
Multiple Destination Deployment
Prodly’s ability to support multi-org projects isn’t limited to its centrally-controlled deployment architecture. With multiple destination deployment, you can now push data sets to as many as five destinations at once.
This new feature should prove particularly attractive to high-volume SIs and Salesforce users with many sandboxes. With just one click, you can deploy the same data set to multiple sandboxes. This feature eliminates the need to repeatedly perform and validate time-consuming deployments to every desired destination organization.
Data Set Templates
One of the most exciting new Prodly features is the ability to create data set templates. You can export a data set from one Prodly instance as a template file in JSON format. After that, you can import it for use in another Prodly instance.
But that’s not all. Prodly has made things even easier to make users t even more self-sufficient. It provides updated, ready-to-use Salesforce CPQ data set templates are now available to download.
Another benefit of creating templates in Prodly is that you can back up data sets for better version control. That’s an incredibly useful feature in any large Salesforce development environment.
Other New Prodly Features
A series of other upgrades and updates will also enrich the user experience and simplify the implementation of popular Salesforce applications:
- Field value scrambling: Scramble field values like social security numbers or email addresses in destination organizations for added privacy and security.
- Empty field values: Set deployed fields to an empty value in the destination organization. This clears out fields to align with business requirements.
- Fixed field values: Set deployed fields to a fixed value in the destination organization to align with business requirements.
Lightning components for data set import and deployment. Start a deployment or import a data set template from any page in Salesforce Lightning Experience.
- Permission Sets: Assign admin and user permission sets to segregate the activities different employees can perform. Using standard Salesforce platform sharing settings, you can also implement additional security to isolate users working on specific clients and projects.
- Set audit fields: Set record system fields using the Salesforce Create Audit Fields option.
Prodly’s not stopping here in its mission to make data migration more scalable. Keep an eye out for more useful, time-saving features in future releases.
