MECOMS 365 – RELEASE UPDATES
Because of a technical improvement in MECOMS.NET Logging, the logging API calls in MEEP can be up to 30% faster than before.
Also in MECOMS 365 CIS, performance and efficiency gain is achieved because of extra implementations of the improved soft-
Most work generally involves applying complex business process transformations on records before persisting in the database. A connection loss that happens in the middle of such a transaction
, causes the transaction to fail, roll back and result in loss of work. Finance and Operations must be resilient to transient connection losses. Therefore, Microsoft foresees the functionality that automatically restarts batch jobs on connection loss, primarily to handle SQL Transient Exceptions. To make sure that this functionality can also be applied on MECOMS batches, every batch needs to be evaluated and possibly reworked. Currently, already 3 MECOMS batches are made retriable; the distributed billing process is the most important one.
As of now it is possible in the MEEP UI to retry only the failed transaction(s). The parts of the process that were already processed successfully remain, and you only retry the part that failed to continue and complete the process.
Because banks have different ways of handling direct debit related bank files, MECOMS foresees the flexibility to cope with these differences now.
Not only on customer data, but also on contract, connection, meter and agreement data, more insight is provided – for audit purposes – by creating logs triggered by changes made to the data. If for example a move in is triggered, this action is visible on the action history of the customer and connection form in MECOMS 365 CIS.
To get a clear picture when a (sub)process exactly started and ended, the logging date/time fields are improved in MEEP. This also helps to understand how long processes ran exactly.
A new contract connection activation status called ‘Cancel activation in progress’ is introduced. This new status properly shows the activation state of the contract connection during the cancellation of an ongoing activation.
All the engineering effort to move the SVS pipelines from SDAS to the cloud is done. To fully complete the cloudification, performance tests are still to be executed.
During the Fall releases no new functionalities for the MECOMS Customer Service (CS) solution, but compatibility with MECOMS 365 CIS and Microsoft updates are guaranteed.
