Deployment Controls In QA Env

Starting 04/01/2015...

Brief:

In order to establish better deployment controls in QA environments, we are mimicking a proven process from SPGPref/Pro into rest of the QA environments. With this new process we would be having below pre-defined deployment windows to support both waterfall & agile methodologies.

Auto-Deployment Windows:

•Small Deployment (03:00 – 04:00 AM ET)

•Small Deployment (08:00 – 09:00 AM ET)

•Small Deployment (12:00 – 01:00 PM ET)

•Major Deployment (04:00 – 06:00 PM ET)


** In-Scope: QA1,QA2, QA3 & QA4

Exception Process:

Emergency/Critical deployments qualify for the exception process with appropriate business justification & an approval from the manager/BRM. Send an email to QMO DL with an hour lead time for all exception/critcial deployment requests, ITQMOApprovers@Starwoodhotels.com
