Many organizations would like to use Java, .net, PHP, and SQL to leverage business logic in their databases and web-enable their applications. Join us for a presentation and workshop to learn about a process for managing software changes from request through deployment that is exceptionally helpful when modernizing applications.

In this hands-on session, you will use workflow-driven change management tools to develop, distribute, and install a variety of objects. You will leave with a basic understanding of how change management increases efficiency and minimizes risk for all your development projects.

Rather than just managing source and objects, change management has evolved to address development management and compliance needs with enforced workflow, request and project management, and reporting for audit compliance and more. We’ll show you how the open architecture of a modern CM tool presents many opportunities to optimize development efforts, whether you are modifying your in-house or third-party apps.
