Third Party Vendor Reception
More reliable roll-out of third party software changes
ARCAD Integrater analyses the impact of third party software changes before they are installed in production, to enable a more controlled roll-out. It can perform an automated, independent impact analysis of new service packs, new releases and versions, to show a list of impacted components and how they are impacted if the changes were to be installed. It thus summarizes components and their interdependencies in an easily understandable way.
It’s impossible for third parties to fully test the impact of their changes
Most businesses use third party applications from more than one vendor and integrate these with each other and with in-house developed code. Third party applications have frequent changes. It is impossible for a third party vendor to fully test the impact of these changes on a customer’s unique environment because they cannot duplicate the environment exactly. Assessing the impact of these changes before installing them in production helps ensures no regression has taken place. Having access to detailed information about every component impacted by a change allows developers to plan a more effective roll-out.
