Release management is a systematic structured approach of releasing the product to customer. The product journey that starts from requirement gathering from customer, conceptualization, prototyping, coding, testing finally is declared or approved for release.

Testing phase can be termed as equally complex stage during Release Management. Product testing is done in various forms starting from smoke till regression testing.

Test Cases are performed on product and test report is submitted back to development team with an indication of severity of each bug reported. Development team fixes those bugs and product once again undergoes testing for validation and confirmation that no new bugs have evolved while fixing the reported ones. Product now has to undergo one more phase of testing which is termed as UAT or user acceptance testing.

The journey of product from development server to test server to staging server finally ends at its final destination – the production server.

Risk Management and Change Management are two very important components throughout the Release Management of product.

To summarize Release Management, a checklist is always important to maintain and update regularly in order to ensure the successful results throughout this journey.
