Release Planning

Definition - What does Release Planning mean?

Release planning refers to the planning process that surrounds the release of a software program or technology product. It is critical to ensuring smooth migration from internal testing to a customer use environment.

Techopedia explains Release Planning

Release planning benefits software products by specifying a timetable for feature delivery. Good release planning also streamlines communication interdepartmentally. For example, a sales manager may be responsible for managing commercial details, while technicians handle technical requirements. Release planning also facilitates a holistic view of how various product factors - such as scope, resources, time and quality - should be addressed during a product's life cycle.

Release planning is a high level decision making process that involves new principles, such as agile software development. Higher level strategic product life cycles often involve this kind of detailed planning, in addition to visual documentation of projected implementations.
