A Quest Addendum … to OpenWorld from SFO

with one comment


I forgot to post the note from Alan Shook, a friend from my days in Oracle Support and teaching at Regis University. Alan works for Quest software, and he works with the Stat for E-Business Suite product. He’s passionate about the product, as you can see in his note. Alan has contributed two appendices on leveraging Quest’s tools to a book that Scott Mikolaitis and I are writing about the Oracle eBusiness Suite. Beyond the upgrade, tools are critical to cutting costs when you convert data.

Alan sums it up by …

“Stat is an Application Change Management product from Quest Software that supports the entire change lifecycle of the Oracle E-Business Suite. It is a single-integrated solution for issue tracking, process control and workflow, version control, migrations, recovery, patch management, auditing, and reporting. Stat provides native support for Oracle flat files, Developer objects, AOL object types, and a variety of application setups. Stat leverages its change management architecture to automate the manual steps required in patching and migrations while simultaneously helping you resolve process control, auditing, reporting and security concerns. The product has a security model to prevent unauthorized changes from being migrated through restricting access to do such task and limiting the rights to do so to those individuals you identify responsible for such actions. The change management process can be enforced with Stat’s workflow engine, incorporating approval requirements while providing full audit trail. Stat conducts all activities in an Oracle-supported manner, hence why it is validated by Oracle for R12 and for Oracle On-demand environments.”
