While many other SCM (Software Configuration Management) related books provide focus on what SCM is, this book will guide you through SCM tasks.
Software Configuration Management Implementation Roadmap provides the reader with the building blocks and concrete steps for implementing SCM. It does this by focusing on several areas:
  • Aligns SCM tasks to the appropriate target levels within the workplace. The three target levels include: the Organization, the Application, and the Project level. This increases the chances of a more effective SCM implementation.
  • Provides a customizable set of SCM tasks and templates for establishing a unique roadmap for implementing SCM. Within this book, each task includes step–by–step guidance to implement the SCM need.
  • Provides a focus on distributed and offshore development since development is more distributed than ever before. This book can help you plan for and guide you through the strategies of establishing distributed development infrastructures.
The materials in this book may help you significantly reduce the time it takes to plan and prepare for an SCM implementation or an SCM task. It will be particularly useful for Software Engineers especially as a reference guide for junior and mid–level SCM persons (SCM managers, engineers, Release Engineers. Build Engineers, etc.)
