Use ZMCR/ZMHF or QGM for Project Rollouts?

Hi Everyone,

We are doing global implementation and are planning to go live with ChaRM soon. We have dual track landscapes, for production support we have decided to use ZMCR/ZMHF but we are still not sure if we should go with QGM or ZMCR/ZMHF for project track.

QGM is simpler but lacks approval/workflow ability that ZMCR has. On the other hand ZMCR/ZMHF offers all the features we are looking for but does it really make sense to use urgent change in project landscape? I am asking because in project we want to move transports in bulk at various phases of projects. How is this controlled using maintenance project and urgent change?

I am aware there is also normal change, but we would like keep the same process for production and project, and also normal change involves TOC which we do not like to use.

So my question is does it makes sense to use only ZMCR/ZMHF in project track? If so how to control movement of transports?

Thanks

Sajid

    Hello Sajid,

    You need to understand conceptually few things...when you say implementation track/rollout track that simply means you need to create an implementation project for the same.

    so there will be 2 projects one for maintenance project of maintenance track

    another one implementation project for rollout/implementation track

    Change Request Management: Enhanced Retrofit functionality

    for an implementation project there is no urgent changes and only normal changes so you can't use only urgent like you have mentioned

    i would suggest you to use the new Central CTS capability of Solution Manager ChaRM which helps to resolve many issues when you have dual track

    you need to create different cluster and it allows very good amount of flexibility to control changes/transports across landscape.

    Please check below doc which might help you further.

    hope this helps further.

    Thanks

    • Hi Sajid,

      ChaRM and QGM have different purpose and therefore the functionalities are a bit different so make sure the requirement is met with what is expected.

      it is against the design for urgent change in implementation Project so you won't get that answer as I have already told you earlier when there is nothing live yet so there is no urgent changes for it.

      if ur issue is resolved...feel free to close it.

      thanks
