Release management is a relatively new but rapid growing discipline within software engineering. It is done to maintain integrity and minimize disruption within IT environments. TQS Release and Patch Management help our clients reduce cost and risk on the rollout of patches and upgrades. These range from Anti-Virus updates, application releases, vulnerability fixes, VMWare changes, operation system updates etc. If not addressed, these will lead to disruption in infrastructure stability, availability, and data flow integrity.
We provide a level of localised domain expertise to ensure that such upgrades are applied with the minimum of disruption. Release Management Support starts with aligning vendor’s routine vulnerability assessment and Patch Management. Following this, we provide offline internal verification of new releases. Once the review is completed, our team will validate the findings and finalise the release for deployment. At the deployment stage, our team will adhere to customers’ protocol for new releases.
Our proactive approach helps risk mitigation and minimise disruption as we schedule updates and verify integrity of data flow post upgrade.
Having a robust Release Management Strategy helps you maintain and optimise critical data-flow and system uptime while ensuring the Release Lifecycle is controlled and managed. Release Management oversees a constantly changing process. Each release is an opportunity to refine everything from your workflow to your checklist as our team help you develop an effective Release and Patch Management Strategy in order to minimise disruption to end-users.
