Date Series Part 1 of Agresso Management Tags ERP / Agresso

This series of articles presents how an Agresso system may be managed in such a way as to minimise risk and provide assurance, traceability and accountability to an organisation, its managers and auditors.

The objectives of the ideas presented here are:

  1. To ensure that all configuration changes to a live system have been tested before deployment
  2. To ensure that testing is carried out on an system that is identical to but separate from the live system
  3. To ensure that all configuration changes deployed to a live system are identical to those which were tested
  4. To ensure that all configuration changes deployed to a live system are recorded and can be reproduced

By way of illustration, the sorts of actions that would run counter to the objectives and ideas presented here might include

  • Making minor development changes directly to a live system (objective 1)
  • Deploying configuration changes manually via the Agresso client (objectives 3 and 4)
  • Testing software and configuration changes at the same time on the same system, but deploying to live separately (objectives 2 and 3)
