Northern Trail Outfitters (NTO) is running a multi-cloud Salesforce implementation with lots of process integration between the clouds and other systems. During the project, NTO faces many challenges including a lack of agility and business value alignment, as well as silo-thinking. After trying different approaches, NTO begins to use Agile and is successful. The project manager now wonders what the recommended operating model would look like.
What should be a Solution Architect's first recommendation?
A Scaled Agile Center of Excellence (LACE) is a small team of people dedicated to implementing the SAFe Lean-Agile way of working1.A LACE can be used to gather information, lead change, share best practices, and keep people on the same page as the organization moves forward2.A LACE is a cornerstone of successful transformations because it encourages continuity and manages expectations3.
By establishing a LACE, NTO can leverage the benefits of agile at scale, such as faster delivery, higher quality, lower costs, and happier customers31.A LACE can also help NTO overcome the challenges of silo-thinking and lack of alignment by fostering collaboration and communication across different teams and systems21.
Universal Containers (UC) is looking to implement a CPQ + B2B Commerce multi-cloud solution and use the CPQ B2B Commerce Connector to keep the two in sync. As part of this implementation, UC is looking to be able to have a streamlined product and pricing experience. As UC would like to sell product kits with tiered pricing through the self-service storefront, it would like to ensure this model can be supported effectively.

The CPQ B2B Commerce Cloud Connector is an unmanaged package from Salesforce Labs that allows B2B Commerce and CPQ customers to configure or customize functionality12.It syncs products, pricing, quote requests, and orders in both clouds12.
For supporting kits in the B2B Commerce Storefront, they need to create equivalent bundle products on the CPQ side3.A kit is a product that contains other products as components3.A bundle is a product that has one or more options that can be added or removed by a user4.The connector maps kits to bundles using a custom field called Kit ID on both objects3.
On the CPQ 826 Commerce Connector, the default mapping of tiered pricing in 826 Commerce is to Discount Schedules in CPQ5.Tiered pricing lets you set different prices for different quantities of a product5. Discount schedules let you apply discounts based on quantity or amount ranges for a product.The connector maps tiered prices to discount schedules using a custom field called Tiered Price ID on both objects5.
Universal Containers (UC) is adding to its existing Salesforce implementation and currently uses Saks Cloud and Service Cloud. UC is looking to add Salesforce Field Service and Experience Cloud to allow its third-party contractors easier access to the data they need and to provide its customers a way to self-service.
UC has expressed interest m allowing its customers to be able to self-schedule maintenance work on their Assets. UC wants a solution to display scheduling options for the next month to its customers.
What should a Solution Architect consider m a potential solution?
Appointment Assistant lets Field Service customers book, confirm, reschedule, or cancel their upcoming appointments. For Self-Service Scheduling, you only need one license per org assigned to one user. You can also customize the look and feel of your self-service scheduling pages and embed them into your Experience Cloud site.
Universal Containers (UC) is using Sales Cloud and Service Cloud. UC wants a solution that can tend scheduled emails on a dairy, weekly, or monthly basis to existing customers and prospects. UC also wants to track if customers have opened the emails. There can be as little as 1,000 emails in a week or as many as 100,000 emails in a month, depending on the season.
Based on that criteria, which solution should the Solution Architect recommend to UC?
Universal Containers uses an ERP as system of record (SOR) for its product data, and Sales Cloud and Revenue Cloud for its sales dat
a. The Product data must be synced with Salesforce so that sales representatives can add the products to their Opportunities and Quotes. As Products are deactivated within the ERP, they should no longer be available. Since Sales Cloud is the SOR for Opportunities and Revenue Cloud is the SOR for Quotes, the Solution Architect has been asked to come up with an archiving strategy that preserves Opportunity and Quote data related to these deactivated products m Salesforce for historical reference.
What should a Solution Architect recommend to manage the deactivation of the Products and archiving of the Saks data?
