Challenge

  • End-user rebate programs driven through OEM channel were complex and time-consuming to manage
  • Data required to reconcile these rebates exists in several different systems
  • Custom code solution proposed but would have taken too long and made Seagate more reliant on SFDC partner

Solution

  • Informatica PowerExchange for Salesforce and Informatica Cloud Services
  • Migrate Product Master, Model Part Numbers, Pricing, OEM and End-User Customer from Oracle based custom apps to Salesforce
  • Push reconciled data to Business Objects based data warehouse for margin analysis

Benefits

  • Margin analysis provided to OEM Channel Management on time
  • Integration completed in less than two months using only internal resources and one call to an Informatica architect for design advice
