Accelerate Application Delivery

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 code development through testing and into production, helping to focus resources on timely delivery of crucial new business functionality. Well-designed and comprehensive release management enables organizations to:

  • Respond and deliver to business demands by deploying releases into production faster with existing or fewer resources.
  • Improve release quality, increase the number of successful deployments and reduce downtime, whether planned or unplanned
  • Improve visibility and insight into project timelines and progress, which prevents surprises and keeps all stakeholders on the same page
  • Simplify audits and compliance by enforcing consistency and traceability of changes
