Release  Management  Challenges   ▪  Use a Project Management or Task Tracking tool? −  No support for automation −  No support for controlled deviations from the plan −  No support for analysis of pain points and targeted improvement efforts ▪  Use a Continuous Integration or Generic Orchestration tool? −  No support for today’s partially automated, partially manual process −  No support for team collaboration −  No support for release dependencies and resource management 9 Copyright  2014.
