Specifically related to the problems my client has encountered due to changes in the handling of replication packages is the glaring IMMEDIATE need for a notification mechanism to advise a person immediately upon the failure of a SkyVia integration package.
We cannot continue to have to rely exclusively on visual inspection of package execution history to determine when a package has failed and continues to fail.
Had such a mechanism existed, we would have been alerted and been able to immediately advise you of the failure, if necessary.
Continual failures of replication packages in a production environment are CRITICAL and cannot be stumbled upon in a happenstance manner as is the case with visual inspection.
We previously raised this issue and nothing has been done to deliver the requested functionality. This is not a nicety, but rather a fundamental requirement of an enterprise replication solution. If such functionality was in place, we may have been able to avoid the loss of several days worth of time-sensitive data history.
