Minor Releases

Minor Release deliveries were introduced in early 2018.

The Change Management Committee (ChMC) have set the criteria for Minor Releases as changes that:

  • typically have no impact for customer processes or systems
  • require less than 100 days effort to deliver
  • are prioritised for delivery before the next available Major Release

Any changes which will impact on customer processes or systems will only be delivered within a Major Release.
