Subject: [Announcement] NERCOMP - Software Release Management - October 7th


Dear Friends,
Seats are still available for NERCOMP's upcoming workshop: 
" Software Release Management Best Practices "
October 7, 2010
9:00 - 3:00 (Coffee and Registration start at 8:00)
NERCOMP Members: $130, Non-Members: $260
Four Points Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center
Norwood, MA.
IT organizations work with a myriad of software applications that are
purchased, open source, and created in-house. Does your organization have
defined release management processes? Release management techniques guide
you through the software development lifecycle. What are the risks and costs
of editing code live on an ad-hoc basis? What are good practices and
challenges that we have experienced? 


This will be an interactive event where you will learn about release
management from presenters and have an opportunity to share experiences with
other attendees. Presenters all have experience managing software and the
audience will be able to learn basic and advanced approaches that they can
take back to use at their institutions. 


This SIG will discuss what organizations have in place for policies and
practices for systematically managing enterprise software. Technical details
will include storing, releasing and reverting software as well as tracking
enhancements and managing upgrades. Benefits and challengers for varying
sizes of development teams will be discussed. 


For a full schedule and registration information, please go to:
We would be grateful if you would pass this announcement on to friends and
