Enterprise Release Manager
Streamline delivery of IT change through embracing “Enterprise Release Management” best practice.
An ERM platform that centrally governs all releases and deployments. Capabilities include Release Scoping, Project Registration, Master Scheduling, Project & Work Item Tracking, Environment & System Contention Management, Implementation Planning, Post Implementation Reviews and Event Deployment Tracking.
The Release Management Problem Statement
Release management, or more broadly “Enterprise Release Management”, is a leading challenge for IT organizations and departments. Ineffective Release management leads to an array of issues, including:
- Poor transparency of “organisational change” & associated “value”.
- Weak coordination across business units, projects, teams & tribes.
- Bottlenecks across key delivery areas like planning, development, build, deploy, test & compliance.
- Manual, slow and untimely IT environment service operations.
- Reliance on de-centralized tooling (spreadsheets, powerpoints & email).
- Slow and untimely executive reporting limiting management decision making.
- Poor information capture limiting measurement and improvement.
- Manual and error prone deployment and Implementation day activities.
This all translates to impact on quality, IT overspends, project delays & consequently slow delivery of change to your customers.
