Release and Deployment Management

Easily implementing new software & updates

The information technology of the companies and the public administration is permanently changing, especially also by means of the continual further development of applications. In this context, the problem often to be monitored in practice: The development of new software versions takes place in a function-oriented manner, according to certain methods and principles, however the operation of these applications often exhibits conditions, which are not completely incorporated in the development. 

The consequences of these discrepancies can be very diverse. They include a lacking standardisation of hardware and software, as well as the insufficient orientation towards customer needs. A large frequency of necessary changes, difficulties in planning the resources for changes and temporal delays in their implementation also count among the typical consequences. In order to be able to sustainably and continually ensure the quality of the IT Services, especially after changes, the implementation of a Release and Deployment process is necessary.

The transfer of the hardware and software planning, including the documentation, into the live operation lies within the responsibilities of the Release and Deployment process. To this purpose, Release and Deployment plans are developed, which consequently orient themselves by the business requirements of the customer. This also includes the fact, that an implementation of the test and approval procedures takes place, which are oriented towards the service requests of the customer and a quality-ensured delivery of the service benefit.
