A new version of Informer Inventory Management (iIM) has been released. Version 1.1 enables accurate tracking and usage of Inventory Reservations against Work Orders, preventing users from issuing inventory that has been reserved, and affording users the flexibility to fill those reservations from the stock that is available.
On January 27, 2020, Interloc Solutions released the Mobile Informer 5.8 Product Update. The new 5.8 version of Mobile Informer makes partitioned Catalogs a first-class feature, providing significant backend performance improvements in environments delivering data strictly via clearly-defined partitions for offline usage. This is especially relevant for customers with separate, disjoint data sets who need that data available offline at all times. An example being assets spread across factories or inventory spread between storerooms at different sites.
In the new IBM SmartCloud Control Desk (SCCD), there are very good Service Catalog and offerings applications that you can take advantage of and use in a production environment. In this blog, Interloc's Pete Morell shows you how to create a Service Catalog offering and add it to a catalog.
A while ago, I wrote an article on my personal blog on how Use Ant to Deploy Automation Scripts. In the article, I walked through configuring a Publish Channel to export and an Enterprise Service to import Script and LaunchPoint information. I then provided an Ant script that could post data to the Enterprise Service. The reason for this script is to make it easy to deploy Automation Scripts from a source control repository like SVN or Git. While Migration Manager make it easy to migrate changes from one environment to another, it does not integrate nicely with a source control tool.
