Thanks for checking out our on-demand webinar! We're thrilled to dive into the world of release management and deployments with Coherence. In this comprehensive guide, we'll walk you through the functionalities of Coherence, providing insights and tips to optimize your developer experience.

What is Coherence?

Coherence stands as the complete internal developer platform, designed to enhance your developer experience across various areas. While our focus today is on release management and deployments, Coherence also offers features like ephemeral preview environments, automatic infrastructure code, and deep integrations into your development tools.

Understanding Release Management

Release management involves deploying to long-running environments such as staging, UAT, QA, and production. Many teams struggle with complex branching strategies, causing issues like failed deployments and time-consuming rollbacks. Coherence aims to decouple release management from branching strategies, offering solutions for common problems like rollbacks, deployment steps, and more.

Benefits of Coherence in Release Management

  • Great Developer Experience: Coherence simplifies the release process, allowing anyone on the team to release code easily. This leads to more frequent releases and fewer choke points in the development process.
  • Minimized Incidents: With Coherence, you can minimize production incidents and deploy more frequently, increasing your team's comfort with making changes.
  • Efficient Workflow: Coherence eliminates the need for maintaining long-lived branches, streamlining your software development life cycle and driving your product forward.

Coherence in Action - Demo Highlights

Let's take a closer look at Coherence in action through a demo. In this example, we're deploying a change from a Jira ticket to a PR to staging and eventually to production.

  1. Promoting to Staging:
  • Coherence's release management tools allow a seamless promotion to staging.
  • The tool shows a summary of commits, changes, and preview URLs for the upcoming deployment.
  1. Testing in Staging:
  • After promoting, the deployment goes through build and deploy steps, offering insights into build performance.
  • QA teams can run tests and scripts against the staging environment.
  1. Promoting to Production:
  • Once satisfied with staging, Coherence provides a simple workflow to promote to production.
  • The production deployment involves a different commit, ensuring a controlled and secure process.

Streamlining Workflows with Coherence

Coherence simplifies workflows for teams, offering a structured approach to managing environments independently of branches. By reducing the reliance on complex branching strategies, Coherence enables teams to focus on what matters—delivering high-quality code efficiently.
