Release management processes have been tuned to coordinating large, complex releases. As more teams adopt DevOps, there is a continuous shift toward on-demand releases with small batch sizes. 

To ensure that release managers continue to provide value in DevOps teams, the role of release managers needs to change. Release managers need to become more agile, increase automation, and reduce release complexity. 

Join Jeff Keyes, VP of Product at Plutora, Helen Beal, Chief Ambassador, DevOps institute, and Mark Peters, Lead Information Assurance/Security Engineer at Technica to learn what is next for release management and what release managers need to do to keep their jobs. Key Takeaways:

  • How release management needs to change in the age of DevOps
  • How release managers can introduce automation into their workflows
  • How to reduce release complexity as batch size decreases
