Risk-Based Configuration Control - Balancing Flexibility with Stability
by Linda Westfall
There is a dichotomy in software configuration management. On one side, individual developers need the flexibility necessary to do creative work, modify code to try out what-if scenarios and make mistakes, learn from them and evolve better software solutions. On the other side, teams need stability to allow code to be shared with confidence, to create builds and perform testing in a consistent environment, and ship high-quality products with confidence.
