: Is anyone out there able to share a
: comprehensive SCM policy and procedure plan that
: effectively utilizes the various features of
: StarTeam: CRs, Projects, Views, Labels, Links, and Tasks. I am particularly interested in seeing
: ideas on a "scalable" approach to managing
: changes that impact multiple systems and tasks.
: Background: Last April, I took a position as
: Manager of Systems Archticture for a small
: Financial Services organization. We are an all
: microsoft shop maintaining four fairly complex
: (100-200 module), component-based VB/sql-server
: desktop applications and three component-based
: ASP/MTS web sites, we also have several large and
: complex batch process, a VRU, and about 20
: smaller, stand-alone VB applications. There is a
: significant amount of code sharing across the web
: applications. We have typically have four-to-six
: new development projects in progress and maybe
: ten-to-twenty fixes per month. We have about 20
: developers on the IT staff and four PMs. We are
: currently using VSS, email, and spreadsheets to
: implement a somewhat faulty CM process.
: I am leading a CM process improvement project
: including getting off of visual source safe. We
: have selected StarTeam 4.2.699 as our new CM product and we are now designing the new SCM processes. I was wondering if you can offer any words of wisdom regarding tips and tricks and how to avoid pitfalls with StarTeam and also how to utilizes the various features of StarTeam effectively: CRs, Projects, Views, Labels, Links, and Tasks.
