We are assuming that everything we need for production go live for PGR has been captured in our JIRA backlog and has been prioritized. If we discover that we have more scope that what we have captured than we would we underestimating the effort to go live.
Here are couple of steps we need to take to ensure we are covering everything:
- Review from OPS point of view, if everything is covered as a story.
- Capture integration of each UI screen as a story with API dependencies highlighted.
- Ensure that all content on UI screen can be fetched by existing APIs.
- Start promoting builds to a different environment beyond QA early on.
