USE CASE: Internal Operations

Home Depot

Objective: Sunset legacy IBM BPM system and manage the same business processes inside Salesforce. Processes are primarily service request based and revolve around Vendor management (SKUs, Options, Price Changes, Catalog Maintenance, etc)

Data needs to be manipulated in Salesforce and then written back to the originating systems.
