E-Business Suite Applications Technology Group has recently released Application Change Management Pack (ACMP) Release 3.1 and Application Management Pack (AMP) Release 3.1.

As you might be aware, Application Change Management Pack is Oracle's offering for customers to monitor and manage Oracle E-Business Suite changes. Application Change Management Pack provides a centralized view to monitor and orchestrate changes (both functional and technical) across multiple Oracle E-Business Suite systems.

In release 3.1 Application Change Management Pack has been enhanced to provide more control and flexibility in managing Oracle E-Business Suite changes.

Some of the key distinguishing features of the new release include:

* Change Approval Framework: Changes orchestrated through Application Change Management Pack can now be controlled through the new change approval framework in Release 3.1. Users can now be segregated as approvers across Oracle E-Business Suite system(s) and modules (Customization Manager, Patch Manager or Setup Manager). Built in notification capability enables approver(s)/requester to be intimated about the status of relevant change requests. It also provides an implicit audit trail mechanism.

* Integrated Custom Application Management: An integrated custom applications management feature enables users to easily register new custom applications across Oracle E-Business Suite systems and also track and validate existing custom applications in a standard way. This dashboard also helps track custom objects, packages and file meta-data associated with custom applications.

* Pre-requisite Patch Analysis: Oracle E-Business Suite patches can now be analyzed for Pre-requisites prior to deployment in the target system. The analysis also verifies whether the pre-requisites are already available (in the target system) and if not, an option to add them to the patch job.

* Offline Transformation: For the very first time, users have the ability to download Oracle E-Business Suite setup data in Microsoft Excel document. Once downloaded, the Setup Data can be edited or new data can be entered into the worksheets. Data is validated within the Microsoft Excel file and also while uploading into Setup Manager.
     
* Built-in Intelligence: Release 3.1 has numerous minor enhancements that provide necessary intelligence for a seamless change orchestration. A few examples are:
* Automated file driver meta-data generation for new files and $Header handling
* Customization Package impact analysis report
* Advanced filtering options for setup migration
          
* Improved Usability: Release 3.1 contains numerous usability and reporting enhancements to ensure better integration with third party systems like source control systems and to foster collaborative development.
