Work flow: Out-Sourcing Assignment – Release Activity

It isn’t sufficient to build a solution. one must also be able to ship it successful.

  1. Ensure Agile Team members are available to fix the final defects.
  2. As per requirement or complexity of product/solution, execute regression test, integration tests and User-Acceptance test; report bugs/ defects in tools such as Service Now.
  3. Since deployments are so time-critical, create deployment plan documented in detail with expected start and end dates and dependencies. The rollback steps/instructions are included in the plan
  4. If solution includes data migration from old system to new, testing migration scripts is an important part of release activity which may have started in Iterative delivery.
  5. Move the build/solution in to Pre-Production environment; Conduct smoke test to verify the new and existing functionality.
    • Smoke testing is non-exhaustive testing, ascertaining that the most crucial functions of a program work, but not bothering with finer details.
  6. Complete documentations such as operational manuals, installation guides, system overview document, so on.
  7. Ensure end-users are prepared to receive the solution.
  8. Deploy the solution to Production, conduct “smoke test”, declare General Availability.
