Large Scale Releases in Enterprise Environments

Large Scale Releases in Enterprise Environments

One of our clients has an release an update to their web sites about once a month. Each release combines work across half a dozen teams, across a few programming languages, moving through five environments, protected by workflow and and with translation, and updates some 400 of their client web sites. This large scale release has been made easier by improving and refining communications; thinking out of the box for some tools; and automating many steps. This talk describes the process that we had a year ago, the improvements that we have made so far, and the changes that we are heading towards.
