Release Manager

Quotation Mark Open

As Release Manager, I strive to continuously improve our deployment practices and keep applications available 24/7. I have global responsibility over the entire release management process and pilot deployment across distributed systems and IBM i.

Keeping application deliveries consistent between platforms is a constant challenge. I analyze bottlenecks in delivery and tune our value stream to align with our pre-agreed business milestones. Working to a DevOps-centric model I monitor our delivery metrics and drive small, incremental deployments. I supervise test automation to minimize impact on users and reduce the cost of defects. Security is an ever-growing concern and a shared responsibility between our teams.

Your challenge? You need to…

  • Migrate traditional IBM i development to a DevOps approach
  • Ensure high standards in IBM i code quality and keep technical debt in check
  • Improve IBM i test coverage and accuracy
  • Test earlier in the cycle (‘shift left’) for reduced mean time to repair (MTTR)
  • Build (recompile) IBM i applications faster and more reliably
  • Orchestrate deployments multi-platform to minimize disruption
  • Eliminate user downtime when deploying changes to very large files
  • Manage and deploy critical data (parameters, configuration data)
  • Shift development the cloud and eliminate out-of-hours working
