Definition: Release • A collection of one or more changes that includes new and/or changed configuration items that are tested and then introduced into the production environment
Release Management in Projects vs. in IT Operations • In Projects: “hand over a project” • “On time, on budget, agreed quality” • Usually is a single app, infrastructure, or a service • Has specific start and end • Quite often treats supportability aspects as low priority • In IT Operations: “Take Over and Operate” multiple Changes • RM’s goal is to deploy many changes in the most efficient, effective and consistent manner through the whole lifecycle of IT services • “Endless” discipline working with multiple projects Change & Release Management
Change vs.andRelease Management in Operations • Change Management makes decisions about individual changes • Risk, Impact, Cost, Feasibility etc. • Release Management deploys one or more approved changes to the controlled environments
