SCM Goals


Description

SCM Goals are a sample set of performance objectives that can be used as an example of typical Software Configuration Management Goals.


Maintain Operational Stability & Reliability

  • Promote stability via consistent behaviors that encourage responsible tracking, supporting and reporting of changes and incidents by ITG teams
  • Lead by example by maintaining the highest standards of responsibility with our own systems and applications
  • Provide a central source of infrastructure data, as well as the processes and procedures necessary to ensure its continued accuracy


Simplify, Streamline and Standardize our Environment

  • Strive to drive costs of our operations by investigating simpler processes and procedures that can accomplish the same level of control
  • Remove all duplication of tools, and choose those that meet business requirements at the lowest possible cost
  • End 2008 with a completely unified Service Management organization and offering


Be Agile & Flexible

  • Anticipate changing business needs and respond by building the necessary flexibility into processes and procedures while maintaining the appropriate levels of control
  • Provide tool sets to the enterprise that are able to adapt to changing business direction and market conditions



Innovate in Order to Continuously Improve Services

  • Show willingness to try new processes and procedures in order to improve our operational control and business agility
  • Pinpoint operational and communication gaps and identify potential solutions
  • Take risks - without risk there can be no innovation just make sure the risk is manageable

** Learn from the failure, adjust your approach, and try again

** Fail small, fail fast, and keep learning


Strive to Learn

  • Identify areas for synergy in our organization by learning about other areas within Service Management
  • Provide superior services by learning and understanding the needs and roles of our customers


SCM Job Duties

SCM Goals: To provide the following SCM services

1. Software Builds

2. Install Packaging

3. Source Code Administration

Objective: The purpose of this objective is the measure associates against the capabilities outlined in their job family description. The manager will set expectations as to what measurements demonstrate these capabilities.

Software Builds: Providing repeatable and reproducible software builds to ensure the rapid development of our software releases - 25%

Install Packaging: Creating robust and reproducible software packaging to ensure proper environment and server configuration of our software application during deployments - 25%

Environment Configurations Management: Ensuring the proper configuration of server settings, 3rd party software and networking settings of the development and test environments and supporting the Integration and Production environments - 25%

Documentation: Creating and updating the installation and configuration specifications documents - 15%

Source Code Administration: Maintaining and administering the source code


SCM Goals Measurements

Plan Measurement: Receive Plan level feedback from customers, peers and manager for the projects supported.

Target Measurement: Receive Target level feedback from customers, peers and manager for the projects supported.

Software Configuration Management Software Configuration Management are the practices and procedures for administering source code, producing software development builds, controlling change, and managing software configurations.

Software Configuration Management Software Configuration Mgmt is a software development support and control function. Specializing in software building, installation packaging, change control and configuration management.

Software Configuration Management Plan This document will cover source code administration, build environment standards and define the process by which new components will be added to builds, and a common understanding of how we will manage broken builds.

Software Configuration Management Systems Software Configuration Management Systems are the end-to-end tools and procedures that encompass the Software Configuration Management Systems. These are more than just software builds and version control tools. These are the processes you build that surround these tools.

Software Configuration Management Strategies Software Configuration Management Strategies can be difficult to define. Your SCM strategies can be as simple as providing excellent SCM service, but they can be more complex by introducing process improvement to your already existing service.

Software Configuration Management Best Practices Software Configuration Management Best Practices are designed and implemented to ensure software quality, integrity and reproducibility. Best Practices are methods and techniques that are proven to be the most effective way of ensuring repeatability of a processes.

General Best Practices Software Configuration Management Best Practices are designed and implemented to ensure software quality, integrity and reproducibility. Best Practices are methods and techniques that are proven to be the most effective way of ensuring repeatability of a processes.

SCM Plan This SCM Plan is a template model for software applications that require a disaster recovery plan.

SCM Books SCM Books is a collection of books and descriptions that can be a valuable resource and background for installation packaging, software builds, source control, software engineering or engineering in general

Forrester Reports This page contains a listing of Forrester Reports for SCM tools. Forrester is a leading company in discovering vendor tool directions and consumer trends. This is a listing of Forrester Reports of SCM tools.

Software Engineering The IEEE Computer Society defines Software Engineering as the application of a systematic, disciplined and quantifiable approach to the development, maintenance and operation of software.

SCM War Stories SCM War Stories are a collection of typical SCM anti-patterns that most experienced SCM Engineers have all lived through.

Circumventing Build Process Circumventing Build Process happens for many reasons. For example, it can happen because someone decides schedule is more important than software quality. Another example, might be that the person making the decision to circumvent the build process does not understand the implications of their decision.

Untested Software Untested software is an anti pattern due to a project that is behind schedule. A decision to proceed with the delivery to demonstrate progress of a project over the proper testing has taken place to ensure quality. Untested Software is a common Software Engineering Antipattern.

What is SCM What is SCM? SCM encapsulates the practices and procedures for administering source code, producing software development builds, controlling change, and managing software configurations. Specifically, SCM ensures the integrity, reliability and reproducibility of developing software products from planning to release.

Why Use SCM Why Use SCM? Software Configuration Management ensures software build repeatability and reproducibility. SCM enforces Source Code Administration Best Practices and proper Software Change Management practices are followed.
