(PRWEB UK) 24 February 2012
Basis Technologies International (BTI), a leader in add-on solutions that optimize SAP, has announced the much anticipated release of Transport Express 5.0. Transport Express has been the market leader for nearly 10 years, offering a comprehensive solution that companies like BP, Xerox, Centrica, Royal Mail, British American Tobacco and Hasbro use as a core part of their SAP development and support methodologies.
Transport Express 5.0 is designed to address a subject hot on the lips of every CIO in today’s economic climate – Productivity and Time to Market.
“When we set out our roadmap for 5.0, we listened to what our customers were saying and we correlated it with industry research and anecdotal comments from key people in the SAP community,” says James Roberts, Product Manager for Transport Express.“It’s difficult enough to manage complex change in a SAP environment anyway – but doing more, faster and with less resource introduces a great deal of risk to your SAP integrity and ultimately your business.”
It was clear that the early 2012 release of Transport Express had to address this need. Originally scheduled for delivery in April 2012, the release has been completed a whole 2 months ahead of schedule and was launched on the 1st February 2012.
The new version introduces new features ‘My Today,’ ‘Delivery Snapshot,’ ‘SAP GUI Integration,’ ‘Remedy Connector’ and ‘Merge Reconciliation.’
The My Today functionality has been designed in collaboration with a number of Transport Express customers who use Agile Development. My Today brings together the important decisions, actions and approvals that each person needs to focus on ‘Today’ in order to maintain momentum with their next SAP release.
“Our tests of My Today have been nothing short of spectacular – we obviously use Transport Express internally to deliver our own software releases and the fact that 5.0 was delivered a whole 2 months ahead of schedule demonstrates how effective My Today is. I have never worked in such a fast paced development cycle as this one and My Today has been central to that,” says Craig Oliver, CTO of Basis Technologies.
“Operational Reporting was an area where our customers were telling us we needed to improve if we were to help them deliver faster release cycles,” says James Roberts. “They wanted high level overview reports and the ability to drill down into the detail. We met with the most experienced Change & Release Managers in the industry and simply modeled the way they work in tools like Excel – we simply replicated what they did in Transport Express and then made it even better, creating the ‘Delivery Snapshot’ feature.”
Basis Technologies are currently running demonstrations and best practice webinars for the new version 5.0 for customers to gain a greater understanding of the new product features.
