Can eSpline translate my old legacy configurator?


Data Arrow - 360x240Yes, we have developed a variety of translation applications that can extract, transform and load (ETL) your legacy rule patterns in your legacy configurator to SAP VC. 

We can leverage several applications that we can reuse, so this is not a total customization project.  The review and analysis of the legacy configurator will require some attention. 

We have worked with several SAP customers to investigate their legacy application rule patterns, extract those rules, analyze them, transform the rule patterns and then translate those patterns to SAP VC.  

Thinking about a Proof of Concept (PoC)?   After the initial analysis of the rule patterns, we can typically accomplish rule translation for 2 to 3 patterns in a six (6) week agile project. 


What is the difference between Avenue i2i and ALE

E-mail Print

Easily and quickly move VC Models

arrows100x75Avenue i2i uses ALE and other SAP standard methods except that Avenue i2i is much faster and much less hastle.  Using ALE you are required to individually sequence the moves and each is manual.  Using Avenue i2i it is automatic.  You select the KMAT or model from a source client,  the plant and how the BOM is used.  Then select the target client and push a button to upload. 

The VC model is moved in its entirety and then validates that the source and target client are the same.  This is the Basic version now available for customer use.  more information button


How can I have this PMEVC Integration?

PMEVC - Buttons and Apps ScreenThe Integration buttons, for now, are custom and the Avenue Managing VC and ConfigScan Testing Solution are sold separately or bundled as shown in the screen shot. 

The Avenue Managing VC and ConfigScan are available separately without the PMEVC Integration, if you liike or do not use the PMEVC. 

A 60-Day trial is available for the Avenue Managing VC (Health Check, Model Compare, Model View, Annotations and Tasks, Change Approvals and more...).

I hear eSpline has a translator to Oracle CPQ?

Avenue Translator for Oracle CPQ | BigMachines

Oracle CPQ logo - midYes, we do have a translator for SAP VC models to Oracle CPQ | BigMachines
eSpline has had the ability to extract a Variant Configurator product model for many years and it has been tested with VCandBig - Side-bySide 200x113 1,000s of  SAP models.  We have translated 3rd party configurator applications to the SAP VC and now have the ability to translate SAP Variant Configurator rules, tables and BOM's and import all objects to Oracle CPQ | BigMachines.  
The VC rules patterns are analyzed and logic is translated and loaded so that Oracle CPQ rule behavior is  virtually the same in either application, so that the investment in the Variant Configurator can be leveraged and continued to be used.  more information button
We have made available an AutoImport solution, now a part of the application that eliminates virtually all of the manual tasks that are required to import to Oracle CPQ | BigMachines (APIs did not exist) making it much easier to get your VC models or model changes to Oracle CPQ | BigMachines. .
