TurboEngines Data Sync services is a critical component of the Conga TurboEngines platform that provides a high performance mechanism to sync master data at regular, scheduled intervals (or on demand) between Conga CPQ on Salesforce and specific consumer endpoints using Conga's Flexible Computing Platform.
Conga TurboEngines is a concurrent processing engine provided by Conga that comprises various microservices that process product rules and configurations, pricing configurations and data, and other product-related business data. TurboEngine offloads the computation workload from the Salesforce platform to the Conga Flexible Compute Platform to reduce the processing time on the cart. Processing the computation workload in the Conga Flexible Compute Platform reduces the interaction costs and the quote turnaround time specifically during peak load or large transactions.
TurboEngines scales on 3 dimensions:
- number of users
- size of transaction
- The complexity of product and pricing configuration
For more information on how to get started with and configure TurboEngines, please refer to the Conga TurboEngines Winter 2020 Administrator Guide on the Conga documentation portal.
About the TurboEngine Data Sync Flow
TurboEngines Data Sync services comprises several components that work to pull data from Conga applications in Salesforce to a staging database that is then delivered using consumer services to various consumer endpoints (Consumer Profiles) based on their need for data. The data sync service pulls data from Salesforce at regular, scheduled intervals (using scheduler) and as needed based on Salesforce Push Topic configuration. A user can also retrieve data by invoking on demand sync from the Data Sync Admin UI.
Refer to the following diagram for a high-level flow of the data sync process between SFDC and TurboEngines.
About Consumer Profiles
A Consumer Profile as defined in Data Sync is essentially a master list and format definition for objects, fields, and the related objects and fields to be synced to a specific consumer endpoint. In the Data Sync Admin user interface, the Consumer Profile is defined as Sync Settings, comprising object and field data to be synced, details or indicators related to the profile, and sync frequency settings.
For more information on Consumer Profiles, refer to Navigating the Data Sync Admin User Interface.
Data Sync Prerequisites
Provisioning requirements for Conga TurboEngines must be met prior to managing data sync. Refer to Enabling TurboEngines in an Org in the Conga TurboEngines Winter '20 Administrator Guide for more information.
