Track Overview

Production Readiness

A production readiness review is used by software companies to determine whether the design and implementation of the system is ready to be released to its customers. The process is used to identify and address the reliability of a service, sufficiency of the coverage of privacy and security needs, and the ease of the operability. This track explores what types of aspects of software need to be prepared to start taking on full production load with customer’s data. Topics include observability, emergency response, capacity planning, release processes, and SLOs for availability and latency.
