  • Planning the release of project deliverables within the Release Life Cycle. 
  • Coordination of the release schedule and resources required depending upon third-party applications, defect backlogs, planned releases, and infrastructure updates.  
  • Identify the risks that can delay the release and manage them, such that the scope scheduled, and quality of the release is not affected.
