Question & Answer

Q: Java stack for SolMan – 7.1 – some functionality is removed from Java stack – going forward could we have Solman without the Java stack

A: 7.2 will not be possible and Java is still required

Q: Business process design – 7.1 – Advanced Business Process Blueprinting – how will it work in 7.2?

A: First customer came back with feedback with lots of feedback and checked architecture and decided to rethink process modeling which is why coming out of new environment

Advanced blueprint will not work on 7.2; only a few customers are using it

Q: What is the planned support for current 3rd Party Tools: HPQC, Redwood CPS, Wily, Productivity Pak?

A: Will continue to support interfaces in 7.1; will not have interface support during ramp-up – there are changes coming  – architecture is changing, want it stable before offer interfaces

Q: What happens if upgrade from 7.1 to 7.2 and have open projects with transports?

A: Current feedback – will have to close project; they are revisiting with development organization – customers are unhappy – customers want to continue to work after the upgrade

Q: Will a planner Excel sheet be available, allow them to find risk and timelines?

A: Not at this point but plan to offer the system – need to upgrade and see what the situation is
