Stabilizing culminates in the Release Readiness Milestone. This milestone, which is a MOF Management Review, occurs after a successful pilot has been conducted, all outstanding issues have been addressed, and the solution is released and made available for full deployment in the production environment. This milestone is the opportunity for customers and users, operations and support personnel, and key project stakeholders to evaluate the solution and identify any remaining issues that they must address before deployment.
