Serena Release Control
Automate Your Release Process for Speed and Control
Improves availability and readiness of preproduction environments
Determine environment status, schedule and contention. Review pending requests and history of deployments enables you to optmize the environment resources.
View current release packages and deployment activity across all your environments. In one view, you can see which release packages and deployments are currently deployed, in the process of being deployed or that have failed.
The effective and efficient use of test environments is critical to a successful release deployment. The combination of increased release velocity, the number of applications, and the complexity of the application infrastructure stack has increased the complexity of managing test environments exponentially. Lack of test environment availability and/or environment contention can delay releases and increase the cost of release deployments.
Serena Release Control enables you to schedule, manage, track, and control all of the test and preproduction environments in your release lifecycle. Environments are a set of resources to which release packages are deployed. Environments can be commissioned, activated, inactivated, decommissioned, and easily reserved and scheduled for specific release trains, application releases, teams, or different business units.
Calendar views give you a unified test management schedule, providing insight and visibility into who and what is scheduled for which set of environments. The schedule view shows all release packages and scheduled maintenance and release windows for an environment. Dashboards and reports based on environmental metrics enable management to easily and efficiently plan, schedule, and coordinate preproduction environments to support the release lifecycle. Stakeholders get automatically notified whenever there is a change in the state of an environment and when their changes have been implemented.
