Enterprise Release Management Teams Are Struggling To Meet Goals
The IT software delivery ecosystem consists of individual tools that manage different aspects of the process of planning, developing, testing, and deploying applications.
Each toolset is optimized for managing a specific part of the release and deployment process – including planning and budgeting (PPM), construction and quality processes (ALM, automation tools, development tools), and management of production environments (ITSM).
The resulting silos require enterprise release managers to use manual efforts (meetings, phone calls, spreadsheets, SharePoint sites) to stitch together pieces from all areas to coordinate the individual release activities.
They spend enormous amounts of time negotiating delivery schedules, test environments, quality information, release gates, and deployment plans and tasks. It’s no surprise that most enterprise IT teams can deliver no more than a handful of major releases in a year.
A staggering 28 percent of IT application development fails, wasting more than $70 billion a year in the US alone. Over half of the projects that are delivered will cost 189 percent of the original estimate. Plutora targets the causes of failure in the development landscape and has helped some of the world’s largest companies to dramatically improve their success rate, application quality, and delivery speed across their entire portfolio.
