Release and Reporting


Release Management is a process that entails the management, planning, scheduling, and controlling of an entire software build through every stage and environment involved, including testing and deploying software releases. It is chiefly concerned with how changes flow through any pre-production environment. It is a rapidly expanding discipline in terms of software engineering.

Release management activities refer to things like:

  • Configuration management
  • Release and Deployment management
  • Designing
  • Planning
  • Rollout planning
  • Testing communication

One of the most important things apart from release management in constantly monitoring the project and providing reports about its progress. One could invest a lot of money an time to find out an issue much later in the project.

Here are some key points to keep the project progress in check:

  • Always compare how many tasks your committed during the project and how many were completed.
  • Progress can be measured in different ways but mainly can be measured by the number of bugs found.
  • Constant check on the progress from your team from sprint to sprint
  • Proper and open communication between the team members, the client and the managers.

Standardizing release management and reporting can improve the project management immensely.
