My colleague Bharath_Vantari is working on an upgrade strategy and plan for how we can make the DevTest products (fmr LISA) easier to upgrade.  The challenge is we have assumptions about how you install and upgrade today.  I'd like to hear from you on how you feel upgrade should work for our product. For example, what is your preferred upgrade process?  Would you rather automatic or manual intervention?

  • An automatic upgrade that incrementally patches and adds features via download to an individual machine (like a browser applies updates today)
  • Manual Intervention applies when you have a need to manage upgrades/patches/updates at an enterprise level (i.e. individuals do not manage patches, installs, etc.).

 

Any and all thoughts welcome here... even if you want to point out your current pain points with our upgrade process.

 

Please respond with your ideas.
