Release Management RACI Matrix By Michelle Henry Is it done yet or Why RACI is Essential Whether you are a release manager, a release engineer, or a someone just supporting a release you understand that the intersection of software releases and instant messaging can be frustrating.  Whether you use Skype, Jabber, Slack, or any other group-based instant messaging application your experience during a release probably looks a lot like this: Co-worker 1 (13:02): Hey, what's up?
