Deploy Applications Into Production Faster

Almost every organization depends heavily on its IT capabilities to support its success. New applications and services are essential to driving competitive advantage, maintaining services, and building new ones. Most IT organizations today are concerned about limited IT capacity and the complexities of release management, which threatens to limit growth. But existing IT groups can rise to the challenge, developing more relevant applications with greater complexity and reliability and bringing them online faster than ever before, provided they have excellent release management processes and the right tools to work with.

Release Management: Helping IT Deliver the Right Apps at the Right Times

A formal, automated release management process helps organizations maximize the value of their existing IT staff. Release management is an application lifecycle management process that guides IT efforts from application code development through testing and into production, helping to focus resources on timely delivery of the functionality that the business needs. Well-designed and comprehensive release management enables organizations to:

  • Improve visibility and insight into project timelines and progress, to help prevent surprises and keep all stakeholders on the same page
  • Increase release flow, to get critical changes into production sooner with existing or fewer resources
  • Improve release quality to increase the number of successful deployments and reduce downtime, whether planned or unplanned
  • Simplify compliance, to enforce the consistency and traceability of changes
