Re: Change Management for small shops



fixed

Honestly, I purchased a CMS when I was the only developer!

But we were also new to the 400 and didn't have any kind of home grown
utilities to help with deployment, source control ect.

From my stand point, it was the one application on the system designed to
save me time. Every other application and the code I was writing was
designed to save everybody else time.

The questions to ask yourself
1) Does your own grown system handle everything, such as SQL objects, it
should?
2) How much time do you spend fixing or enhancing it?

I'd ballpark $10K-$20K for a CMS for 6 developers...

Assuming $60K salaries...and you save just 2% of your time...you'd have
about a 3yr ROI...

Without revealing any vendor secrets, what does a change management with
deployment cost ? upfront and yearly. We only have 6 developers who all
sit within 20 feet of each other and talk daily and they manager is also in
the same space so never really found the cost to be justified and our
auditors have been OK with it in the past. But auditors have different
opinions sometimes and we just got someone new for the financial audit.

TD/OMS (formerly known as Tight As a Drum) handles all of that: source and
object control, IFS documents (everything), complete life cycle management,
and excels at roll-outs and roll-backs to multiple targets.

And a good change management product will tell you when you try to
roll out a printer file from development to production if someone
changed any attributes on the production, like changing default
printer, overflow line, etc. Stuff that you don't even need to
recompile for.
