Release Management

Release Management is the process of managing, planning, scheduling, and controlling a software build through its different stages and environments.


Without a solid Release Management process in place, pitfalls such as quality problems, configuration issues between development and operating environments, and adverse impact on test environments can hinder the success of a software project. An effective Release Management process guides projects through build and test environments into production successfully, and in a scheduled and predictable manner. As these activities are documented, and therefore visible, better decision making can result for future releases.


The pillars of Olenick Release Management include:


Release Coordination – Ensures that all release deliverables have been completed inline with the release dates


Environment Coordination – Manages the lower level environments ensuring they are available and stable for development and testing activities


Code Deployment Management – Plans, schedules, and controls the movement of code across the various environments


Configuration Management Tracks all software and hardware assets


DevOps – Combines Development and Operations, and implements automation for efficiency
