Welcome to part two of our blog series on change visualization and Peer Reviews (Click here to read part one). We’ll look at how peer reviews will help developers gain confidence in the release readiness of their work and be empowered to share best practices between peers.
With a focus on the developer experience in Dimensions CM 14, Serena believes that Peer Reviews can unlock the potential of team members to share their learning and encourage teamwork, without
I love it when I hear how Serena Business Manager (SBM) can help automate tedious paper-based processes, increase visibility and transparency, and eliminate resource waste.

Two of the most highly anticipated areas of new development for Dimensions CM 14 are change visualization and peer reviews. Taken as individual new capability areas, these features represent a massive stride forward for our flagship SCCM solution.

In a very unscientific survey of more than 60 release management customers over the past 18 months, the winner in the “Largest Gantt Chart” award came in at 2.5 meters wide (8’ 2”) by 1.5 meters tall (4’11”) with over 90 “deployment tracks” covering the 68 hours of the “go live deployment weekend” or “GLDW.” One whole track was devoted to catering and it was on the critical path.
