Migration Path Environments for Small Organizations

After describing the migration path environments for different customers, I thought it might be time to define some migration paths and their associated environments.  This a migration environment pattern I have, usually, seen in small organizations.  The definition for each environment is in the table below.

Environment NameDescription
Development (DEV)The Development environment is used for developing the application and the submission of baseline code to the source control system.
Quality Assurance (QA):The Quality Assurance environment is used for testing of configuration, performance, application processes, and functionality validation.
Production (PROD)The production environment is the final release environment, where the system will begin its Initial Operating Capability (IOC).
