Why use Visual Studio Release Management?

Key differentiators & advantages of Visual Studio Release Management

  • Easily define your release process: 
    • Visually create the configuration paths that describe the promotion path through your environments
    • Drag and drop to create workflows that do the work of deploying your software: copy files, create IIS sites, install MSIs, and maintain all of your configurations
    • Use the same deployment for every environment, including deploying to production

  • Manage a consistent deployment pipeline: 
    • Schedule builds and trigger your entire release management flow from within Visual Studio 
    • Enable approvers to schedule each promoted release at a time that suits them, providing the versatility of automation, while still maintaining control 
    • Visualize your release pipeline and model your release process to know where you are at a glance
