i am looking into the options of upgrading from ClickSoftware 7.5 for SAP Workforce, Scheduling and Optimisation to 8.1.(n) latest for a major ISU in the UK. 7.5 is out of support so one way another we need to upgrade. there are a number of options available.
one of the options of this upgrade could potentially move away from the Wessendorf adapter to use the SAP PI adapter and preconfigured content for SAP PI.
i have a few concerns with this.
1) the client would want a phased approach to go live to reduce the risk. can you run 7.5 and 8.1 concurrently and filter different results to different ClickSoftware databases/systems from SAP ECC?
2) how does an upgrade affect the custom developments from ClickSoftware? do they have to be re-done/keyed or are we just re-pointing one outbound connection to another?
Has anyone successfully followed this upgrade path?
what are are the impacts if we just upgrade the Wessenforf adapter?
