Release Management for Parallel Development: A Case Study

De Sujoy, Rahut Amit Kumar, and Bhattacharya Uttam

Abstract—The objective of this whitepaper is to elaborate a case study where Cognizant consultants helped the IT division of a large private bank of Europe come up with a new Release Management model for migration of their existing legacy mainframe systems to the Java Application Platform (JAP). The existing Release Management model in the bank was analyzed and a new model was adopted which successfully addressed the drawbacks in the pre-existing one. Some basic metrics for gauging the performance of the two models were defined, a prototype spanning one release was carried out in both models, and data for the metrics was captured. The paper also outlines the quantitative analysis of both models on the basis of those metrics, and demonstrates the superiority of the new model over the pre-existing one.

Index Terms—Branching and merging, software configuration management, release management.
