Tektronix had undergone recent acquisitions and needed to upgrade to a modern CRM system. Implementing this, while upgrading the marketing automation (MA) platform and maintaining connectivity to the data warehouse at the same time, would be a challenge. This required a major transition to migrate the CRM system, while changing systems and processes from an email blast tool to a multi-touch campaigning platform, all by a certain date. In addition, senior executives were concerned about maintaining the lead flow and its impact on revenue, given their complicated environment. What if mistakes were made and opportunities were missed? What if a lead was not routed correctly? What if important, contextual, historical data was lost? Tektronix asked The Pedowitz Group to help with an ambitious goal – connect their new marketing automation platform to the marketing data warehouse and replace the old email system. TPG was chosen not only because its consultants hold multiple certifications in MA and CRM platforms, Case Study: Tektronix The Solution TPG and Tektronix began their journey together with a series of on-site discovery sessions to first establish a clear "as-is" state for the current systems and campaigns. A second session was held to map out the interfaces between the data warehouse and the new MA system. After that, the hard work began. The integration team began mapping out the links, using pervasive middleware, between the data warehouse and MA. It was quickly determined that the MA natively could not accommodate all of the needs, but that it allowed for the addition of "custom objects" to assist with such requirements. The TPG team worked closely with the Tektronix team to ensure that all requirements were met, and then built, tested and deployed the interfaces collaboratively.
