Release management can feel like old news, yet it is essential to the success of SAFe, DevOps and other modern methodologies in large enterprises. Though the role of release management may vary, it remains the lighthouse that keeps everyone from crashing into the rocks below. Release managers understand and manage the hidden dependencies and impacts of every change to ensure that quality releases deploy on time. 

Release management is evolving to meet the needs of SAFe and DevOps by leveraging data-driven decision making. Release management can enable delivery improvement with a “Slow down to speed up” approach. By streamlining release processes from development to deployment, release managers can continue to create value in a DevOps world. These release management best practices enable teams to deliver more features to their customers through more efficient and higher quality releases. 

Join Tony Mongiovi, AVP of release management at Healthfirst, Jeff Keyes, VP of product at Plutora and Helen Beal, industry leader in DevOps evolution to learn best practices for setting up and executing on your release management strategy and how to leverage value stream management to take release management to the next level.

  • How release management provides value throughout your digital transformation 
  • Core tenets of release management with SAFe and DevOps
  • How to organize release management teams and gain executive support
