staged release strategy | Glossary

Definition :

 System development decisions often have deep strategic, business, and cost implications. If not planned correctly ramifications of incorrect decisions may be felt long after the decisions have been made. On the periphery of system development one very important aspect addressing this issue may often be under emphasized or overlooked all together. This is the implementation, execution, and management of an effective software release strategy. This becomes exponentially important when building a custom application because of the many challenges facing development teams:

  • Managing development activities
  • Managing integration of new development into the existing application
  • Managing application dependencies
  • Managing new feature/function requests
  • Managing compliance with departmental/federal regulations, mandates, and processes
  • Managing security requirements (vulnerability assessment testing [VA]

The Speed of Trust | Book Series


From Stephen R. Covey’s eldest son comes a revolutionary new path towards productivity and satisfaction. Trust, says Stephen M.R. Covey, is the very basis of the new global economy, and he shows how trust—and the speed at which it is established with clients, employees and constituents—is the essential ingredient for any high–performance, successful organization.

For business leaders and public figures in any arena, The Speed of Trust offers an unprecedented and eminently practical look at exactly how trust functions in our every transaction and relationship—from the most personal to the broadest, most indirect interaction—and how to establish trust immediately so that you and your organization can forego the time–killing, bureaucratic check–and–balance processes so often deployed in lieu of actual trust.
