SCM over ERP

Hi Gurus
I would like to know what are the advantages of SCM over the ERP applications. Is it that SCM provides good interaction and collaboration with the outside entities or it also gives an advantage to the internal processes also?

Regards
Sandy

I would say that the SCM is MOSTLY an internal benefit when you have multiple developers that are often stepping on each others work. This was a great tool for Baan development, where you had many programmers working in all areas of the software. Your internal developers can check things out and make changes, and other developers on the same VRC will not see those changes until they are checked in. Other developers can also then not make changes on those same objects while they are checked out.

For your live environment, if there are some serious problems that need to be debugged in live, SCM provides your developers or Baan support the ability to compile scripts in debug for themself, and others do not see the debug.

When working with outside developers, it is not so much of an advantage, because usually what they have is developed on their own system and needs to be put into a test environment for everyone to see/test. If the outside developers are dialing in and developing on your system, then they too can use SCM so that's helpful.

Hi Lisa Bencic
we are working on Baan5 and ERPLN(win2k,SQL Server2000).
we want to activate SCM(Software Configuration management) but unfortunately we came to know that SCM works on only unix OS.Is it true?
Does it depends on OS?
Can u comment on the same??

regards,
Rajendar G

To stay off-topic

Baan SCM relies on VCS, a version control program that is included in most (if not all) Unix installations.
As far as I know there is no Windows equivalent for this program, since MS pushes SourceSafe to handle version control under Windows.
