My company is having problems with prolonged Freeze periods vs. the Maintenance schedules, resulting in scheduled changes cannot be made during the freeze periods.
Do you know of or do you have any recommended Best Practices for handling Change Freezes?
I greatly appreciate any information you could provide.
