Mebourne, AU (PRWEB) November 30, 2015
Revelation Software Concepts Pty Ltd(RSC), a pioneer and market leader in simplifying change control automation for SAP® software users, today announced the Phase 1 roll-out of Rev-Trac 7, the company’s highly anticipated new version of its flagship SAP Change Control Automation solution.
“SAP business users are calling for changes to the way software enhancements are being delivered. The historical method of the big ‘go live’ once or twice per year with an extensive and lengthy hyper care period following, is no longer palatable”, said David Drake, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of RSC. “Rev-Trac 7 speaks directly to that need by adding important features allowing SAP IT support and project teams to meet today’s business demands for continuously delivered software enhancements and accelerated software delivery timelines.”
Rev-Trac 7’s reorganized web UI has an updated look and feel throughout, and consolidates many capabilities introduced previously as add-ons. In addition, the new web UI provides both browser access and mobile approval components, a huge benefit to customers preferring web access. And, the new UI adapts its display to the screen requirements of the particular device in use, whether a desktop, laptop, or mobile device.
The new HTML-based single point of remote entry utilizes the RSC Core VM to provide authorized users with secure access from any web-capable device. It also facilitates such remote capabilities as mobile change approvals, change request documentation and reporting.
Beyond the enhanced user interface, key features of the Rev-Trac 7 Phase 1 roll-out include:
Mobile Access - CIOs and authorized managers can now access Rev-Trac on their phones or tablets, allowing them to securely monitor system changes or provide migration approvals remotely.
Release Management – The procedure to attach a new change to a change request as part of a release has been simplified from up to 11 clicks or transactions to as few as 2 clicks. For the person responsible for release management, the process takes up to 80% less time.
Release Preparation – Preparing related changes for a Release has always taken a lot of manual work. Rev-Trac 7 automates this process by formally introducing the concept of a Rev-Trac Release, under which types of requests with specified attributes are treated in specified ways. The new Rev-Trac Request Type determines what changes a release can hold and greatly simplifies preparation.
Release Workbench – Rev-Trac 7’s new Release Workbench utility provides drag and drop functionality that displays the Rev-Trac requests on the left side and all the applicable changes on the right. You can select a change request like a file and drop it onto the release, like a folder. When you save changes, Rev Trac dynamically creates a reference link, eliminating manual steps. Rev-Trac 7 then synchronizes transports so any on a change are copied into the release. The process works bi-directionally, so you can remove a change from its release for any reason.
The Release Workbench is integrated into the existing Rev-Trac change transport workbench. This lets you drill down by selecting one or more changes and then displaying details. You can also perform a Rev-Trac OOPS check directly from the Release Workbench.
“Rev-Trac 7’s systematic simplification and feature consolidation makes releases faster, safer, and more easily accessed for management,” said Rick Porter, Vice President for Business Development. “Everyone gains better visibility into releases as they migrate forward to production and access to specific changes at any point in the process becomes faster and easier. The entire change control and release management process is smoother.”
