Revelation Software Concepts unveils enhanced collaboration and integration capabilities in Rev-Trac 8.1 Platinum
New easy-to-use features improve team communication and help to save time and money
MELBOURNE, Australia, June 12, 2019 – Revelation Software Concepts (RSC) today launched the first enhancements to Rev-Trac Platinum, the latest offering of its flagship automated SAP change management platform.
Version 8.1 introduces new changes that lay the foundation for a successful SAP DevOps strategy utilizing a technology platform that automates the SAP application development process. The enhancements give organizations the capabilities to break-down traditional siloed development and create an end-to-end platform to accelerate SAP change across an application lifecycle.
Chris Drake, Product Manager at Rev-Trac, said there was an increasing demand in the market for an automated, unified chain that delivered faster, better and safer SAP applications at lower costs.
An SAP DevOps toolchain is not a chain unless all tools and processes are connected in some manner to effectively support the continuous delivery of SAP change. To integrate modern ALM tools and give organization’s control over the progression of change, Rev-Trac 8.1 offers bi-directional REST APIs.
Mr. Drake said this innovation enabled SAP IT teams to respond quickly and cost-effectively to continual changes in business demand leveraging Rev-Trac’s powerful enforcement and automation capabilities.
“For some years now, Rev-Trac has integrated with service desk and change management tools like ServiceNow and Tricentis Tosca, making automated data exchanges between ALM tools a reality,” Mr. Drake said. “The REST APIs take this integration to another level, establishing a single change management process that cuts development costs and minimizes risk. They provide the flexibility and the robustness to safely integrate with a wide variety of applications running businesses today.”
Manage and improve team performance
Collaboration is crucial in any DevOps strategy. Communication is what brings development and operations teams together and allows them to make rapid changes to an application or service while maintaining system stability.
Rev-Trac 8.1 incorporates an enhanced comment section that improves collaboration, quickly connecting team members who can share data, manage workflows and resolve issues.
The comments serve as an interactive discussion board focused on the issue the Rev-Trac request addresses, providing an enhanced level of transparency to SAP changes. To add individual members to the conversation simply tag the user with an @dropdown in the comment, which triggers an email notification inviting them to participate.
Enhanced user experience
Rev-Trac 8.1 introduces advanced support for customization of the user interface. Administrators can customize the content and layout of the Web UI to improve the experience as tasks are performed.
While ABAP developers have always been able to customize the Rev-Trac SAP GUI interface, the new enhancements allow them to easily configure the Web UI layout. Users can set up custom field, field labels and tabs in the Web UI to collect custom data that can be readily categorized.
A Revelation Software Concepts (RSC) solution that enables organizations to increase business agility and accelerated transformation in a fast-paced digital economy. The market-leading SAP change management products – Rev-Trac Platinum and Rev-Trac Insights – help reduce the risk and lower the costs of managing and delivering changes in SAP software across ALM and DevOps platforms.
