Question:
Are 2CM Keys Needed with 3rd Party Change Management products such as Aldon, Implementer, MoM?
Environment:
iSeries
AS/400
Answer:
Yes, Customers will have to purchase the 2E CM license even if they are using Aldon as their Change Management Service. This would be the case for any CM Tools (Aldon, Implementer, etc..). All the information from a 2E perspective would still be fed to the desired CMS APIs using the 2E runtime APIs around model object lists built for 2E - CM Integration. If any new vendor wanted to write a new Change management solution for CA 2E, they would have to utilize these 2E runtime API's for working with a list of CA 2E based objects.
