Release Analytics

Release Analytics feature is in beta and ready for early adoption. In order to enable it, contact your dedicated customer support executive.

The Analytics tab, in Release Manager, provides you with a comprehensive view of the progress and status of all release activities and criteria, scope items, TECRs, Bookings and Deployments plan within your release. At the Enterprise release level it provides a summary view for the Enterprise release and all Project releases within the release manifest. At the Project and Independent release level it provides a summary view for that specific release. It gives you:

  • the ability to view the progress of Activities and Criteria and identify how many are overdue. This helps ensure the release process is being adhered to during the full life cycle of the release and supports you to make the final Go/No Go decision.
  • the ability to see the progress and breakdown by Type of all scope items. This helps ensure that all scope items are in the correct state as you progress through each phase and gate of the release and helps identify any risks to the release schedule due to scope items not being ready for release on time. Scope items that are not in the correct state may need to be removed from the release or the project release needs to be moved to another enterprise release. This also supports you to make the final Go/No Go decision.
  • the ability to see changes to the scope of the release over time. This help identify any potential risks to the release due to late scope changes close to the implementation date.
  • the ability to see the status of all TECRs to know how many are outstanding as well how many have been completed. As you promote changes to higher level environments and to production, it enables you to ensure that all TECRs are being approved and executed accordingly.
  • the ability to see the status of all bookings to know if any bookings are still Pending as well as how many are Approved/Rejected. This helps during the early stages of a release (e.g. Planning) where one of the first steps is securing Environments.
  • the ability to see the status of all Deployment Plans to know how many are in Draft/Approved/Execution/Completed. This provides value towards the end of the Release when preparing for your Production deployment as you can quickly verify all deployment plans have been approved before making your Go/No Go decision.

The Analytics tab also provides value when you are completing a release as you can quickly verify there are no outstanding Activities, Criteria, TECRs, Bookings or Deployment Plans before setting the release to a completed state.
