Serena Release Manager

Bridge Dev and Ops

Improve Business Agility and Increase Revenue
Application development and IT operations groups both exist to support new and ongoing business requirements, yet the two are often in conflict. The top priority of application development teams is to create and launch new applications—and enhancements to existing applications—as quickly as possible. For IT operations teams, the priority is ensuring availability of production systems, and the greatest threat to the production environment is change. While IT operations groups must incorporate new applications and changes into the production environment, they proceed slowly and cautiously.

The enthusiasm of application development groups and the caution of IT operations combine to create a backlog of changes and new applications waiting to be released into production—and a backlog of unmet business needs.
