I've had to ask a client of ours who works as a government contractor what versions of software he requires. Every project at our company requires a TAP. A document outlining the software and versions of each needed.
Not having access to the share point where this TAP was stored, I figured it would be easier to ask the developer.
So this was my question to this developer:
Can you let me know the versions you need for alterix, tableau and tomcat? I was able to get the licenses for alterix and tableau from Ken.
Also do you want anything else with Alterix? Like the Data, Designer or predictive tools along with server?
And this was his response.
Server License Key(s),Version Information and Specific tools are provided and documented by several team(s) and processes in company-TECH. Unfortunately, it appears that those are of not much use. In any case, I am happy to do all over again.
Alteryx – Latest stable version 10.X (Server/Designer. No need for data or predictive tools for this phase)
Tableau – Latest stable version (10.x)
Tomcat – Please select the latest stable version
I get the sense that my question was out of the ordinary and an annoyance to the developer. Was my question out of order, considering that I "should have read and understood the TAP and known" rather than ask him?
