BRF+ for Utilities

Hi,

I have implemented BRF across multiple utility clients in North America for Collections Management and would like to use BRF+ for my next project. I would like to know if you have seen successful implementations of BRF+ in any geographies - A couple years ago my colleagues tried implementing it but their were lot of corrections pending to the tool ( at least 20 additional notes) to make it stable for Utilities.

If there are any successful implementation experiences - please share as they will help me in proposing the use of BRF+ to my team instead of BRF.

Regards,
Shweta

    Shweta:

    There are quite a few North American utilities using brfplus for collections as well as for other aspects like DSM, product modeling, AMI and other applications. ASUG would be a good place to get info about those customers and their uses of the tool. Or they can comment.

    Beyond that, SAP would not recommend anyone implementing BRF at this stage - it is an obsolete tool, still supported but no longer developed. Any new implementation should be based only on brfplus and decision service management - tools which are significantly more robust and more user-friendly. More can be found via the SAP Business Rules Management

    regards,

    bill.

    Hi Shweta,

    It is highly recommended that you utilize BRF+ for fresh implementation(s), as that is what SAP has been focusing on, and adding newer Collections Management functionality to . You can get invaluable information from the link below:

    Business Rule Framework plus

    My experience thus far:

    1. ECC 6, Ehp 5 - no Notes required.

    2. ECC 6, Ehp 6 - 1 Note applied for break/fix.

    3. ECC 6, Ehp 7 - no Notes required.

    The stability really depends on the platform (Ehp/SP) you're on, and the various touch-points you wish to link your BRF+ Application to.
