Before releasing a change to our NetSuite environment, I utilized Netwrix Strongpoint's Environment Comparison tool for a thorough check. It was during this process that I discovered a discrepancy in one of the scripts, revealing that our development environment lacked a crucial change present in production.

  • Adapting to Evolving Business Needs. Being in the fine wine business since 1944, Zachys needed to constantly evolve to meet changing business requirements, especially with an operation that spans multiple offices and facilities.
  • Managing Complex Software Environments. Running NetSuite across their organization required efficient management of their software environment to ensure smooth operations and prevent errors in deployment.
  • Avoiding Potential Errors in Software Changes. With the necessity of regularly updating their software environment, Zachys faced the challenge of ensuring that these changes were error-free and would not lead to additional rework or problems in their production environment.

The discovery enabled me to implement and test the necessary modification in the development phase, prior to its production rollout. This capability of comparing environments provided by Netwrix Strongpoint was pivotal in averting the risk of inadvertently reversing a previous fix.
