SANTA CLARA, California, May 17, 2017 – Sesame Software announced today Relational Junction Release 5.8, on the Salesforce AppExchange, empowering businesses to connect with their customers, partners and employees in entirely new ways. The new solution includes features that allow recovery of non-traditional data models, including single-level and multi-level recursive relationships.
Built on the Salesforce Platform, Relational Junction Release 5.8 is currently available on the AppExchange at appexchange.salesforce.com.One of the challenges for backup and recovery of cloud data is that data models evolve over time. Traditional hierarchical data structures are becoming more recursive in nature as businesses implement data models that apply to the real world. In a hierarchical model, customer accounts have contacts and other related data. Creating or recovering this data to a system such as Salesforce that generates its own unique metadata involves pre-loading the customer account first to get the resulting record identifier, then updating the relationship field in the contact record before loading the contact. Sesame Software developed this technique in 2007 and was awarded United States Patent 8,375,010 in 2013.
The problem arises when relating objects to themselves, either directly or through multiple levels of other objects. What if customer accounts have sub-accounts for subsidiary companies? The end result of recursive or nested relationships is that recovery can become a difficult and time-consuming project.
With the 5.8 Release of Relational Junction, Sesame Software has solved this problem. Simply by marking records at the highest level in the data tree for recovery, the new recovery procedure will search for all Salesforce data model relationships and include those objects and their related records in the recovery, with the recursive relationships handled in a second pass. The new technique no longer relies on database triggers, and can still be restarted without creating duplicate records if there are any issues during the recovery. This patent-pending feature gives Sesame a unique ability to handle what has become a commonplace data recovery situation.
