Fundamental KPIs to track for better release management

When it comes to release management, there are several fundamental Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that can help you track and improve the release process. These KPIs provide insights into the efficiency, effectiveness, and overall success of your release management practices. This video showcases some essential KPIs to consider in your release management process.

Video Brief-

Key performance indicators (KPIs) help assess the effectiveness of release management processes and identify areas for improvement.Four basic KPIs for release management include frequency (how often new releases go live), cycle time (time taken from development to delivery), success rate (number of defect-free releases), and rollback rate (number of releases that had to be reverted).

  • Frequency should be determined based on the type of releases, considering the balance between higher frequency and patch releases.
  • Cycle time may indicate inefficient release management processes and requires tools for measurement, such as Jira’s cycle time report.
  • Combining basic and advanced KPIs provides a comprehensive view of release delivery parameters, promoting proactive process improvement.
