Welcome to the Clarity PPM SaaS Transition Blog series. This blog series provides customers updates regarding the Clarity PPM SaaS transition to the Google Cloud Platform™ (GCP). This is the third post of the series. In the first post, Broadcom provided an overview of the transition process and discussed the benefits of transitioning to GCP. In the second post, Broadcom focused on pre-transition activities customers and Broadcom will perform before any of the Clarity PPM environments are transitioned to GCP.
In this post, the focus will be on the transition activities customers and Broadcom will perform during the transition to the GCP platform.
Once the Broadcom PoC informs customers that the selected non-production environment is ready for testing, customers should immediately begin testing activities. Customers should focus on the initial testing activities on determining if there are any application errors or general database integrity issues. Next, customers can focus on performing typical role-based activities such as creating projects, performing typical project activities, submitting timesheets, creating resources, executing processes and reports, etc. This test should be similar to the customers' regular regression testing plan. Remember that it is just a suggested list of activities. Customers need to create a detailed testing plan to ensure you thoroughly validate the environment.
Some key points to remember are:
If customers encounter any issues during testing, please track each item on the issue tracker spreadsheet template provided by the Broadcom PoC. The issues will be triaged and remediation results will be updated in the spreadsheet.
Thank you for being a part of the Clarity PPM community. Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org in case you have any specific questions for us. The next blog will be published on March 16th.
Thank you so much for this, this is a great help.
As I was not with the company when we started using Clarity, I am not sure exactly which of our objects, attributes, lookups, processes etc. are our own creation and which are out of the box. I have tried to find a list or table somewhere that will show me everything for each area that is out of the box, that way I will know what we need to focus on in this transition, however I have not been able to find anything. Can you point me in the right direction of where something like this is listed?
We would greatly appreciate this assistance :)
