Release Management for Application Development
Application development is evolving, and application delivery must evolve to keep up with the influx of application changes and new application development. Application development teams are confronted with a growing demand from the business for changes to existing applications and the development of new applications. These changes represent business service enhancements that drive new revenue; in essence, Apps = Cash. Agile development needs agile delivery and continuous delivery. DevOps is moving application development teams closer to Quality Assurance (QA) and IT Operations teams as the entire application development and delivery processes become orchestrated.
