What is Release Management?
Launching a new product or an upgrade to an existing product can seem straightforward.
Statistics show, however, that the stakes are high: Ineffective Release Management can cause up to 80 percent of all IT incidents. For the enterprise, the best way to avoid incidents and lead to a more successful outcome is to develop a well-planned Release Management strategy, leveraging the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) framework.
Working within the ITIL framework, Continuant is dedicated to helping the enterprise obtain the best Release experience. We offer a commonsense, systematic approach to Release Management, tracking and optimizing throughout the entire release cycle. Continuant understands how to work through the challenges associated with Release Management and help businesses determine:
- The frequency and regularity of releases, patches and/or updates needed;
- The speed at which releases need to occur, especially related to Emergency releases; and
- The complexity of systems, environments and variations in OEM requirements.
