Track: Partner Sessions

Session Number: 170045
Date: Tue, May 9th, 2017
Time: 2:15 PM - 3:00 PM
Room: 109

Description:

We always hear from many customers that Teamcenter deployment/upgrade for the production Go-Live is hectic and time-consuming compared to other widely used business applications.

 

For customers with more than several thousands of Teamcenter users, it is very common to have a horizontally scaled-up infrastructure with multiple instances of Teamcenter diversified components. Huge amount of efforts will be required to perform Teamcenter upgrade/deployment on all the infrastructure components.

In global deployments with user base located in multiple sites across the globe with different time zones, it is always challenging to bring down the production system for more than 16 hours even during the weekend. Teamcenter deployment/upgrade process during the production release has become a daunting job for the IT teams to finish on-time without having any impact on the business.

 

Smart deployment/upgrade of Teamcenter coupled with continuous integration process described in this paper provides a methodology to move into agile rollout process and to successfully meet the customer’s hard timelines for rollout which eventually improves the productivity of the entire deployment/upgrade process. This deployment strategy describes a smart process to finish 70% of the activities prior to the rollout weekend without impacting the business and perform minimum number of activities during rollout weekend, thus reducing the time window for production downtime. The methodology also enables quick and easy rollback process to ensure business continuity. Smart deployment coupled with continuous integration process gives an edge to improve the quality of the deployment with cost benefits and enables agile rollouts for business demands

              

Smart upgrade methodology has been successfully tried in large customer’s environments. This helped them to reduce the production downtime within desired limits and also to improve quality of deployment
