Release Manager and Release Creation

In this module, we will explore the Release Manager tool, which provides a grid view of all releases in the software delivery lifecycle. Releases capture essential information such as phases, gates, activities, and criteria. We will dive into the various tabs within the Release Manager, including Project, Systems, Events, Change, Environments, Stakeholders, Activities, Linked Items, and Comments. We will also learn about release templates and how to create new releases from templates. The module emphasizes customization options, integrations with other tools, and best practices for managing releases effectively.

Throughout the module, we encourage hands-on practice, including creating a template for a project release with phases, gates, activities, and criteria, and then creating a release from that template. By utilizing the Release Manager effectively, teams can streamline their release management processes, enhance collaboration, and ensure successful software deliveries.
