Introduction to Stat

Stat Solutions

Quest® Stat® is a multi-purpose application, capable of automating many complex tasks. Whether you take advantage of its sophisticated change management and version control functionality or use it simply as a help desk tool, Stat provides a variety of technological benefits and advantages.

Stat delivers a complete solution for the management of PeopleSoft®, Oracle® Applications, and other file-based environments. One of the greatest risks developers face is the loss of customizations during upgrades and development. Lost customizations can result in costly re-work and even enterprise downtimes. The control, coordination, and documentation tools in Stat virtually eliminate the risk of overwriting customized objects. Stat is the only application that provides in a single package version control, change control, project management, and issue tracking functionality.

Version Control

With Quest® Stat®, all versions of your objects are archived and stored indefinitely. This allows development to proceed without the risk of overwrites and lost changes.

You version objects by adding them to a work packet called an archive set. Before development begins, Stat automatically takes a snapshot or baseline archive set. During development, developers can make as many additional archive sets (containing some or all of the objects) as needed. At any time, deleted or modified objects can be recovered or rolled-back to a prior version without performing a database restore. Using the Stat Rapid Recovery Wizard, objects can be moved, individually or in groups, from Stat to any supported database or file directory. Recovery is even possible if the object no longer exists.

Change Management Support

Quest® Stat® provides comprehensive change management support for both PeopleSoft®, Oracle® Applications, and file-based application environments. With Stat, the development, migration and documentation cycle of objects (including PeopleSoft proprietary objects, business objects, and file objects) is never broken. Audit trails provide increased accountability during and after the initial implementation. As developers document the modifications they make to objects, these changes are automatically user, date, and time stamped.

The following sections provide a brief overview of the change management capabilities featured in Stat. For more detailed explanations and instructions, see the change management chapters.
