Importance of Extension Cataloging before an Implementation or an Upgrade

Rationale for Performing CTRM Extension Cataloging

As a part of the pre-upgrade process, each of the class events, message events, database views, and stored procedures are analyzed and categorized based on the functional areas and complexities.  Each component is evaluated to determine what is new, what is different, and what has changed.

Value Creed’s Step-by-Step Process

Identifying Purpose:

We determine each extension’s current use and application (integration, functionality, efficiency).

Identifying Business Task:

For better resource allocation, irrelevant extensions are excluded from the upgrade process.

Assessing CTRM Capability:

Custom events included as standard features in the upgraded CTRM version are discarded.

Identifying Functional Group:

Existing extension groups are categorized by business user: back, front, and middle office, administration, etc.

Sorting by Complexity:

Categorization is performed based on the estimated level of effort required to fix the extension.
