Here in the company I work for, we have several major products that are heavily reliant on the Product Configurator. We also have a list of additional products that management want configurators written for, some simple and others quite complex.
I’m reading lots about Epicor’s transition to Kinetic, trying to garner the feasibility of continuing development along our current path. I’m sure the questions have been asked but I’m finding it difficult to find any concrete answers. What are the continued plans for the Product Configurator in an ERP with a heavy Kinetic/HTML based front end?
Are tools being developed that will supersede the configurator? Will the C# based tool become unusable as Epicor moves further down the browser-based path? We have a lot of time and energy invested into our current setup and we’re getting a little nervous with the thought of continuing to develop with tools that may soon become obsolete.
Are any of you (many) people who are cleverer than me doing configurator-like things with REST? I feel like this is where I should be investing my efforts rather than writing new C# based configs, but I haven’t heard of anyone doing this sort of thing. Is there a better way forward that I haven’t come across yet?
I’m sure we’re not alone in this…
