Release Strategy 2018-02-12T19:25:06+00:00


The DevOps movement through the emphasis on incremental releases which were discussed in an earlier section has allowed for the incorporation of new release strategies that serve to allow for rapid deployment to production, increased quality, and strategic advantages through the use of A/B testing and live statistical sampling.

One of the tremendous advantages to using one of the DevOps release strategies along with incremental releases is that is allows for a decoupled deployment and release. What this means is that we no longer are tied to the traditional model of having major new releases to customers every year or couple years as the software industry has followed in the past. Now organizations can break out individual features or group features and send them to production at any time without waiting for other features to be packaged up into a major release.
