Using ChaRM Retrofit?

Greetings, Solution Manager experts.

My company is considering implementing an N + 1 ERP environment: 1 stream for maintenance, and 1 for project work.

At this time, I am trying to assess if ChaRM Retrofit is being widely used in the industry, and what benefits and problems companies have seen with it. From what I can tell, there is not much documentation available on this topic.

Are you using ChaRM Retrofit in an N + 1 SAP landscape?

If so, has your company see a benefit to using this product?

Can you offer any tips or watchouts to implementation?

Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi Chris,

    - ChaRM can certainly be used in the kind of landscape you described

    - The benefit for the company is:

    - controll on all changes in the Project Env. and the Maintenance Env.

    - the system warns you when a developper accesses an object or cusotmizing which is already in use by somebody else,

    so this helps you to avoid overlapping activities.

    - the Retrofit functionality is of great benefit to get the delta of a new development project as low as possible when you bring

    it live.

    - there are presentation ons the SAP sites, but indeed hard to catch. Look into the SolutionManager RKT, ther eis a lot fo new

    material available.

    Kind regards,

      Here are the information i collected about his topic. (hard to find information about that) :

      Prerequisites :

      A retrofit system must exist in the Maintenance Project (role type : Post Processing system). It should be a development system of an other project, for exemple an implementation project.

      The task list of the maintenance project will now have two new tasks :

      --> general tasks --> Assign Post Processing system to development system

      --> Track section --> Post Processing --> retrofit systems --> start retrofit

      I wish i could give clues for further research
