Why not to use CRM.Cockpit?

Hi Community,


in the last over 10 years of my update/Aurea-history I am using CRM.Cockpit for deployment from DEV to TEST and PROD (in about 30 Aurea projects). I like it, and it makes my life much easier: the installation goes smoothly, I have "only one step" to do and I do not have to think about "what I might forgot" to deploy, or in which order should I do it.  As CRM.Cockpit was introduced years ago (with CRM v8?), it had a lots of issues, but with the time it became a very useful tool for deployments. I really thank You for it, update/Aurea!


In the discussion with other Aurea Partners (or Aurea itself), I learned, that the "old update specialist" still do not use this tool: they use communication, bulkloader, batches, etc. for deployments. My question is: WHY?

Why not to use this? If you just start a new Aurea.CRM project, why would You not choose CRM.Cockpit for deployment?


I suggest everyone to try it out and use it, so I would like to learn, why You decided not to use it. I want to be prepared for discussions in the future about this, so I would like to know the "black side of CRM.cockpit" ;-)
