Release Management

Transform your existing release process to support DevOps and Continuous Delivery

Challenge

Release Management in most enterprises is a stressful and inefficient mix of outdated spreadsheets, confusion, manual catchup, and coordination. Release managers, Project Managers, QA, and DevOps teams have little advance warning of potential conflicts, delays or bottlenecks, especially across releases. This means little ability to act together and to act early to prevent surprises—resulting in errors and delays.

Solution

XebiaLabs’ solutions offer DevOps and application teams a way to finally integrate the management and execution of releases and provide a path to fully automated delivery pipelines and faster delivery of software.

  • Allow all involved teams to plan, track, and execute releases from a single interface
  • Include both manual and automated tasks so your teams can start running your existing release plans in minutes
  • Identify inefficient and error-prone stages in your release flow to ensure process improvements and automation deliver the biggest possible benefit

Features

Identify and fix problems before they delay the release

Team notifications, progress tracking, dependency management ,and conflict detection allows all teams involved in the release to identify, discuss, and fix problems before they turn into crisis-level roadblocks.

From release spreadsheet to delivery pipeline

We know that “come back once you’ve automated everything” is not a feasible approach in an enterprise environment. XebiaLabs’ solutions allow you to quickly get started with your current manual or partially automated release process and progress to standardized delivery pipelines when it makes sense for you.

No more early morning status calls

Allow all teams involved in the release to see the current status of tasks, communicate with other team members, review completed actions, and analyze the logs of all executed tasks. No more catch up calls to find out what went on: everyone works from the same page and can see task updates as they happen. In the office or on the move.
