The Future Of Work Is Now: "Far beyond collaboration, the digitization of work determines how we work and engage people. Technologies – such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, analytics, and cloud technologies – change the way we recruit, develop talent, and make our workforce more inclusive. They also introduce new jobs, largely with different skill set requirements. Some of the most-wanted jobs today did not exist five years ago – and many jobs we wouldn’t even imagine today will arise in the near future. Our workplace is changing at light speed.

SPS01 strengthens Release Management Workbench, expands support for SAP S/4 HANA,
and deepens integration with the Salt custom code database
Melbourne, AU - November 15, 2016 – Revelation Software Concepts Pty Ltd (RSC), a pioneer and market leader in simplifying SAP change control, today announced the release of their first major enhancement (SPS01) to version 7 of their flagship SAP change control automation software, Rev-Trac. The SPS01 update includes many features that strengthen Rev-Trac 7’s Release Management Workbench, supports all aspects of SAP S/4 HANA change management and further leverages the custom code database of RSC’s Salt SAP change intelligence software.
“This service pack provides important foundational improvements to Rev-Trac’s popular Release Management Workbench, but it’s Rev-Trac’s expanded integration with Salt’s custom code database that excites our Rev-Trac customers,” said David Drake, RSC Founder and CEO.
“The current release introduces Peripheral Object Dependency Checking and includes API integration points for further Salt and Rev-Trac Java integrated enhancements we’ll make available in the foreseeable future.”
- Updates to the Release Management Workbench focus specifically on release and change status synchronization, and adds the capability of synchronizing any request type including non-SAP requests.
- Request level explicit dependencies will allow for an organization to define the sequence of migration for entire Rev-Trac change requests, treating each of their subordinate transports as a group that can be sequentially controlled.
- Source-specific cloning allows a single request to manage the replication and retrofit of changes to multiple applications, using a single Rev-Trac clone request.
- SPS01 expands Rev-Trac’s SAP S/4 HANA support by including both native and non-native (non-ABAP) changes.
- As the first in a series of Rev-Trac features improving the integrity of changes delivered across multiple complex or hybrid SAP landscapes, the new Peripheral Object Dependency Check, or POD Check, helps teams avoid problematical outcomes from moving changes or releases forward without required dependent object versions.
At a joint event in a high-speed train from Rome to Naples SAP and Trenitalia showcased how Trenitalia is running into the future by using Internet of Things technology. Sensors combined with SAP IoT solutions and the SAP HANA platform allows Trenitalia to provide its customers a more efficient and reliable service and saves maintenance costs up to 8-10 %.

By Mike Hayes Read the full article at Revealvalue.com: "Have you ever been told to do one thing and know you should do the exact opposite? It happens to me all the time. Being a consultant, I travel incessantly – new airports, new cities, new addresses and different rental cars. Every week, I have to figure out how to connect my phone via Bluetooth to a different car model (I need to start traveling with a millennial) so I know where to go.
In addition to that is Google. Now don’t get me wrong; I love my cell phone and Google maps, but I grew up with a father who had an innate ability to know where to turn. Now I am the father, and I believe I should have the same intrinsic ability when it comes to direction. That ability has been relegated obsolete due to that lady with an English accent directing me from my phone. Nearly every week she tells me to turn left when I know I need to turn right. More oftentimes than not, though, she’s correct.
Interestingly enough, supply chain planners using standard SAP exception monitoring are challenged by a similar internal battle — not which way to turn, but deciphering the exception message presented in the Stock Requirements List or the MRP List. The exception message presented indicates one course of action when the planner intrinsically knows he/she may need to take another. In these cases, however, the planner seems to be correct more times than not.
Re-prioritizing MRP Exception Messages
Let me explain. In SAP, an MRP element may have up to two exception messages. One is presented in the initial display, and the second, if generated, has to be sought out. SAP has grouped and prioritized exception messages. Forty-something messages divided unequally into eight groups. Independent of those groups, SAP has assigned a priority for each message. The priority determines what order messages are presented. Higher priority messages are presented before those of lower priority." Read the full article, by Mike Hayes, at Revealvalue.com
