Introduction to Release Management

Release & Deployment Management is essential


to manage successful deployment of all related
changes into the productive environment.

Release Management defines dates and


schedule for Releases.

Release content is determined by Projects,


Requests for Changes, and related Change
Documents.

The Release Cycle is a technical container and


model for the release content.
