Release Management concepts and tables

The Release Management application encompasses the planning, design, build, configuration, and testing of hardware and software releases to create a defined set of release components.

Table 1. Release Management concepts
Concept Description
Products Represents the hardware or software for which releases will be built. A product can be linked with a Business Service in the CMDB to link it with other ITIL processes.
Releases Represents a planned release for a product. The content of a release is defined by the features (and associated Requests for Change) that it implements.
Features Represents the individual changes being made to the product. A feature may be associated with a configuration item or with a change request, and to a parent release.
Release Phases Represents the planned phases that a release will have, which are used to group the tasks required to carry out the release.
Release Tasks Represents any of the tasks required to implement a feature of a product.
