Optimization of resource utilization and attaining good business value through consistent set of reliable resources remains the main objective of Release Management solutions from JanBask. The relevance of release management has improved dramatically, ever since most of the businesses began focussing more on shorter and profitable business projects. It is inevitable to utilize the potential of native Salesforce tools for Release Management; most importantly Sandboxes and Cloud deploy sets or change sets.
Unlike in some companies wherein they will be using different release management processes, we prefer to streamline the processes across various sets of users so that the processes become consistent and thereby enhance the business effectively. A centralized system is very necessary to keep track of the customer needs at a single location, since each of the customers may use different systems to manage different sets of needs.
We consider factors such as total cost of ownership for your business before implementing any enhancements, since we think the enhancements performed by us is going to have a significant impact on your business. With a steering team in place, we periodically review your requirements and categorize the changes to be made to the system on a priority basis. There should be an effective coordination between your business and IT department, since the value for each feature request and the efforts needed for implementing the change depends on business and IT departments of your company.
It is up to your IT department to publish the release calendar dates that should be comprised of dates for unit testing, QA dates, CRP dates and finally the deployment dates. We help your organization engage in change management process comprised of document requirements; latest production code alongside test cases that would be reviewed altogether. We recommend you to adopt agile development methodology for enhancing development productivity and thereby deliver good business value with Release Management.
