 Release Validation Casts Light on the Change Twilight Zone and Enhances Release Management

 

In today’s complex, dynamic data center there is a haze cast over critical IT processes by a concept that we can call The Change Twilight Zone, a obscure area that falls https://geniusee.com/single-blog/how-to-make-fintech-release-easier

outside the visibility of IT Ops. Many IT departments try to implement ITIL configuration management without giving much thought to the tools required by the staff to make the configuration management service really effective. For today’s IT tasks, configuration management new tools. Going beyond the ITIL change management framework, you need an analytics-driven tool to identify those specific changes and differences that are introduced across the environment during releases, which could impact performance and stability of critical business applications. Such tools can remove the shadow inherent in the Change Twilight Zone, allowing IT to confidently close processes and validate changes in application deployments and software deployments, to know that they were implemented correctly.

Existing Tools Don’t Meet the Needs for Today’s Deployments

IT Operation teams are increasingly responsible for managing continuous application integration and data center application release and maintenance tasks, introducing formidable challenges. Expanding on ITIL change management processes, automated application deployment software seeks to turn complex, manual operations into reliable, repeatable and error-free processes, by making release tasks simpler, and mitigating the risk of faulty application change and deployment errors. Yet, despite the widespread use of deployment automation software, this is not enough to achieve the stated reliability, requiring release validation tools for maintaining optimum availability and performance, and preventing harmful downtime.
