Software Release Management
When new software is released, the company releasing the software must decide how to distribute the program or system.
While it is a relatively new process, release management is simply the managing of these software releases.
As software systems become more distributed, they also become more specialized and complex. Software products such as Web applications are in an ongoing cycle of development, testing and release. And with the growing complexity and evolution of the platforms that these systems are being run on, there are many moving parts that must fit together seamlessly to guarantee the success and long-term value of a product or project.
So what can be done to streamline the process? Release management. This process must be put in place to oversee the integration and flow of development, testing, deployment and support of these software systems. In the past, this type of management was usually assigned to a project manager. However, this person was probably more concerned with the high-level, design aspects of a project or application and so often did not have time to oversee some of the more technical or day-to-day aspects.
