Recently at a customer site we discovered a great use case for the Project Release field when used in conjunction with Release Management. This organization required 2 different change types. Firstly, changes to be deployed in the morning. These changes having been assessed to not impact production stability. Secondly, other changes to be deployed in the evenings. Changes that couldn’t be introduced while the business is using the production system. In this case, the developer could determine whether the change required morning or evening deployment and could assign the schedule.
Business must be agile so it can respond quickly in dynamic and changing market environments. This is resulting in the need for rapid responses from SAP IT and support teams and managing change by frequent release is a proven method of enabling these teams to respond effectively.
