There are situations when Excel is an ideal solution for CPQ, for example when your configuration mix is small and uncomplicated, with few people generating proposals and tight budgets for software investments. But as you scale up to a larger group of users, with increasing proprietary information, need for approvals and a generally more regimented […]

First, let’s start with some definitions. What is “democratization” (in this context anyway)? What is simulation? Is it different to modeling? Is democratization the same as deployment? And what on Earth is “appification”? Once we’ve covered the “what”, then maybe the “why” will have more context… “Democratization” – at least to my mind – is […]
