Configuration & Release Management System
I currently help manage a set of models ranging from Dev, Test, & Production. Our Production model is live with close to 700 users. We release changes into production on a 2 week cadence but there are times where a fix must be pushed live immediately patching.
Some new features may take longer to develop 2 weeks, so when is not ready to go live and we need to push other fixes into production, we need a way to prevent half-finished features from being accessed by the user. For new dashboards this may be as simple as not publishing a button, or turning off role access. But what about when something model wide is going to change like a formula, or a new table on an existing dashboard that is not easily hidden?
We have tried the following to attempt to solve this ourselves:
* Completely reverse certain changes, push the model into production, rebuild them
* Turn off role access to certain buttons, contents pane access etc.
* Develop a mirrored dashboards with new features etc, test that and then rebuild the dashboard when ready to go live. (same for modules etc.)
Anaplan needs a way to designate which parts of a model are to be pushed via ALM and others that are not ready and need to be left out. I realize this is not a simple request, but otherwise it is incredibly difficult to keep from pushing half baked features into production accidentally.
