Configuration
Migrator

Accelerating the configuration process

What is Configuration Migrator?

Configuration Migrator is a time-saving solution that automates the configuration process for Oracle Cloud. Moreover, it enhances the alignment between customer groups by improving collaboration between company-wide departments.

Challenges

Once the client decides to make the move to Oracle Fusion Cloud, they can face several problems:
 

  • Unable to decide their requirements regarding the configurations they would like to migrate
     

  • If they migrate the configurations from legacy systems to Oracle Fusion Cloud without vetting them, there will be a need to come back to the team to discuss inconsistencies

How does Configuration Migrator help? 

  • The transition or on-premise to Oracle Fusion Cloud migration is made easier by importing configurations from on-premise systems to a familiar spreadsheet. A spreadsheet format enables the team to evaluate the configurations and decide changes according to the needs of the company.

  • It allows the team to collaborate in cleaning, removing and finalizing configurations for the cloud environment.

  • It automatically moves configurations to Oracle Fusion Cloud reducing effort and time needed to do manually.

Product Highlights

Migration of configurations includes:
 

  • Classes

  • Structure

  • Unit of Measure

  • Approved Manufacturer List (AML)

  • Change Orders
     

Three paths can be used for the migration of configurations 
 

  • Agile to Cloud

  • GoStart to the final template (used for new implementation)

  • Dev platform to next

Agile PLM to Oracle Fusion Cloud Workflow

1. Using Agile PLM, GoStart is populated 
 

  • A Configuration Package is exported from Oracle Product Development Cloud and configurations are exported from Agile Product  Lifecycle Management using Agile Configuration Propagation (ACP) in .agl format.
     

  • Using the Configuration Migrator, configurations are converted to GoStart format.
     

  • A customer review with plm.gs team takes place to customize GoStart and discuss the mappings & limitations in the movement from Agile PLM to Oracle Fusion Cloud.


The template (GoStart) is then ready to be applied to Oracle Fusion Cloud using the Configuration Migrator.
 

  • The Configuration Migrator uses the configurations in GoStart and updates the Configuration Package.
     

  • The updated Configuration Package is then uploaded to Oracle Product Development Cloud.

New implementation Workflow  

The user starts off with a pre-configured industry specific template, GoStart, as a basis for configurations.

After a customer review to make GoStart completely according to the customer, it is ready to be imported to Oracle Fusion Cloud using the Configuration Migrator after which validations take place.
 

  • A Configuration Package is exported from Oracle Product Development Cloud and GoStart is populated with configurations consisting of Parts, Value Sets, BOM, Manufacturer Parts, Change Order, UOM Class, and Unit of Measure.
     

  • The GoSaaS Migrator uses the configurations in the GoStart and updates the Configuration Package.
     

  • The updated Configuration Package is then ready to be uploaded to Oracle Product Development Cloud.
