Release management

Our proven solutions result in continuous integration & delivery deployment

Release processes often result in a duplicated effort, corner-cutting, cost overruns & poor quality deliverables. 

The biggest challenges that our clients face is being able to consistently make informed decisions.

All programmes & projects commence with the best of intentions. As soon as the pressure is on, corners get cut, some based on theoretical unmodeled risk, others because the originator believes they will retrospectively address the prerequisites, which for many reasons they don’t. 

We often hear the phrase penny rich & pound poor, they saved time today that will cost money to resolve in the future.

Common client challenges:

  • Lack of visibility of the current pipeline & work assignments.
  • Prioritisation clashes.
  • Understanding the business value of the change as well as the cost to deliver it.
  • Deliverable status.
  • Bundling product changes to enable efficiency.
  • Duplication of inputs without a single source of management information.
  • Determining the required resource capacity & spikes.
  • Meeting delivery timelines.
  • Following processes.
  • Code quality.
  • Automated build & deployment.
  • Automatic release note production & communication.
  • Acceptance testing.
  • Packaging & archiving.

Our solution benefits:

Our solutions enable organisations to visualise the pipeline from sales to product; prioritise demand based on forested profitability, enabling informed decisions based on resource capacity, track delivery progress & the associated costs. 

The solutions are fully automated enabling organisations to understand the true state & cost of delivery, resource requirements & determine efficiency improvements. These solutions are underpinned with Agile training, mentoring & support addressing the cultural & technology changes concurrently.

We enable fully automated change management capability. Integrating systems, automating workflows, providing on-demand management information whilst fine-tuning the technology ways of working, enabling businesses to adapt & adopt process & technology enhancements, so that they realise cost & quality efficiencies, whilst continuously improving.

We provide our clients with a unified CI/CD pipeline across their estate while enabling them to:

  • Build In quality – utilising unified repeatable & reliable processes that address IAST, SAST & DAST as well as functionality testing at the point of code commit.
  • Capitalise on automation when scanning code, verifying the build & determining collateral damage before conducting any manual testing.
  • Utilise version control so we can back out changes on demand.
  • Make everyone responsible.
  • Enable continuous improvement.
  • Bring the pain forward where it’s less expensive to address.

Via the use of Kibana dashboards, we provide a single dynamic Management Information dashboard that draws information from multiple denoting:

  • What is currently in the pipeline?
  • What is the state of the current deliverables?
  • Who is working on what, are they are over or under committed, what is the true cost of delivery?
  • How does the cost of delivery reconcile with the estimate & the value of the change?
  • Do you have the capacity to deliver your changes?
  • Do you need to change priorities or bundle products?
  • Where are your bottlenecks?
