By adopting automation and implementing a strategic release management program, the company learned it would be able to strip out most manual change control tasks and activities, respond more quickly to business requested change, and ultimately deliver more projects sooner with fewer go-live errors. Plus, with the right tool selection they could guarantee change control compliance with automated tracking, process enforcement, and documentation of all changes.
Rev-Trac was selected ahead of several readily available solutions, including SAP Solution Manager ChaRM and two other notable third party SAP change control automation solutions. Once the selection process was completed and the decision was made to implement Rev-Trac, within 3 months the solution was in productive use.
As far as adoption of Agile/DevOps principals with regard to its SAP development process, the company considers itself “already there.” Having adopted Rev-Trac the company can continue to integrate and automate critical ALM tooling when needed as part of this effort, with ITSM already well established. IT considers Rev-Trac’s workflow automation, extended locking and OOPS to be extremely effective features in helping them achieve their SAP change management success.
