UK Link – 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.
