Build & Release Challenges : Problems

So here is the consolidated list of the problems that current system have, I've categorized all the issues in different categories so that they can be managed properly

  • CI Builds
    • Code stability builds are not in place
    • Code quality builds are not in place
    • Code deployment builds for non-prod environments not in place
    • A lot of manual steps in prod deployments
    • All the projects are performance critical so builds to do profiling of projects
  • Database updates is manual at all the stages of deployment
  • Automated smoke testing of all the applications
  • Integration of bug tracking system with version control system
  • A release server needs to be set-upped so that release can be managed properly
  • No documentation at all :)
  • Version Control System : We are using git as version control system
    • Branching strategy has some flaws as a result of which merging takes a lot of time
    • We don't have a GUI to manage git server
