In aligning workareas to act as SAP Companion to both Dev/QA and Live instances of technologies such a SF, C4C, S/4HANA, what are some of the issues you may face if you go for a Simple Model (1 WorkArea used for both a Dev/QA and Live instance) VS Complex Model (Separate WorkAreas for Dev/QA and Live instance)?
Is it just the content migration or are there other issues such authentication/permissions, look and feel, broken links etc
Simple model: All application instances pointing to the same SEN instance:
Complex model: Separate SEN instances (or Workareas) for each application instance
Personally I advocate the simple model unless you have specific security reasons for making the release of help content a two-step process (I have clients that want to mirror a 'transport' / change management process for help content. Again, just my personal opinion (and I'm sure Anton has others...).
