The Standard Release migration process supports the following scenarios:
- All developers in the organization use a single shared development environment (recommended by Pegasystems).
- The organization follows a distributed development model, where individual developers or development teams have their own isolated development environments.
The release process works for either development scenario, because it begins after changes have been merged into the appropriate ruleset versions. Regardless of development scenario or team size, development teams must use branching and merging for releasing applications. Otherwise, you cannot take full advantage of the tools and capabilities of the Pega Platform. For more information, see Understanding application release changes, types, and processes.
