Goal

Question 1:

Is PDC required for BRM 12 ?

Customer who are  currently using the BRM 7.5 xml pricing format to generate and modify pricing configuration for both real time rating and the discount pipeline.They currently do not use Pricing Center to generate these xml files, but have a custom process which generated these xmls.


Is there a need to use pricing center when upgrading to BRM 12?
Can they still load the old pricing xml files with loadpricelist and LoadIfwConfig?

The documentation states that PDC is required, however the pricing data still seems to reside in the same tables and both loadpricelist and LoadIfwConfig are still part of the release and seem to be working.
