Salesforce customers have the opportunity to take advantage of Salesforce’s powerful data architecture and analytics platforms. A big challenge to overcome is migrating and integrating data from other systems at a low cost. Only when data is migrated and integrated are you able to see the full power of the Salesforce platform for 360-degree views, alerts, and analytics.

For the education market, the Salesforce Connected Campus vision provides a next-generation system of engagement with connected systems across institutions, systems, schools and districts.

Data migration and integration

Data migration and integration with Salesforce starts with flat-file data loaders. To load flat-file data into Salesforce (even one-time) requires mapping and transforming the data from your system to the Salesforce data model. Many times this process involves messy spreadsheet manipulations with VLookups to ensure that related Salesforce identifiers are included in the flat-files for loading. All of this can take hours, is error prone, and needs to be repeated for the next data load. 

The challenge here isn’t just loading the data, but prepping the data to be loaded. A good data loader removes the need for messy VLookups loading. A great data loader removes the need for using spreadsheets for external data mapping and transformation altogether.  Building integrations with Visual SQL Wizards, provides a guided visual process for fully populating your Salesforce objects model.

 
 

Lingk is a great data loader because you can use the power of SQL with SQL Recipes on top of any existing data during the data preparation phase and cleanly accomplish things that a spreadsheet would make messy. As a Salesforce user, you may already know SOQL (Salesforce Object Query Language) or SAQL (Salesforce Analytics Query Language), so SQL concepts are already an important part of using Salesforce effectively. 

Migrating data from one Salesforce org to another Salesforce org is a critical use case in today's enterprise implementations. Lingk provides powerful Salesforce org to Salesforce org data synchronization through SQL recipes. Become a Salesforce data magician using the power of Lingk.

Lingk is Simple

You don’t need to know SQL to load data into Salesforce at all. You have the option to let recipes you build with Visual SQL Wizards guide your steps with mapping and transforming data or you can build SQL recipes directly in the Recipe Editor. Either way, you have powerful, reusable data loading at your fingertips. Recipes can be run immediately, scheduled by day, hour or minute, and triggered with a REST API. 

Lingk Provides Tools For the Full Process

Environments centralize the use of connectors and credentials to reduce the risk of errors and enable multi-environment deployment processes. Metadata from connectors used with the planning tool and SQL recipes enable faster and easier integration. Schedules and Events enable time and event-based triggering of recipes. With Lingk, the whole process is under one easy-to-use umbrella.

Lingk scales to fit your needs

As team members come and go, managing multiple integration projects can be very challenging. For organizations, workspaces enable each project to have it's own collaborative space to bring people and processes together. For technology providers, each workspace can represent a customer engagement - bringing all your implementation, professional services, and support operations together.
