Rise in Cloud-based solutions drive changes in transport management

Dan McGrann | June 19, 2018

Just before the recent SAPPHIRE conference, SAP quietly announced the “beta” availability of a new Cloud-based Transport Management System which is supposed to be similar to CTS+. Since it’s still in beta, it’s hard to determine exactly how it will work. However, SAP states that it will support a wide variety of content and many different types of target environments.

Cloud-based technologies gather over SAP

SAP has introduced numerous Cloud-based solutions over the past few years including SuccessFactors, Ariba, Concur and Hybris. This has led to a gap in the ability to automate the change deployments to many of these applications, so the new TMS is a promising development.

Rev-Trac Platinum has been able to fill that gap for our customers with:

  • Native support for CTS+ for Hybris and HANA changes
  • xDeploy – our generic deployment solution – for some Cloud-based applications
  • “Workflow only mode” for SAP applications like SuccessFactors, which don’t have an automated deployment capability

What does SAP’s TMS mean for Rev-Trac?

We’re staying closely tuned to these new SAP developments and are already planning how Rev-Trac Platinum will integrate with and utilize this new functionality.

Stay tuned to our new website for updates on this topic. For more details or if you have questions on SAP change management, contact us: sales@rev-trac.com.
