The benefits companies can derive from implementing continuous delivery (CD) initiatives are tangible. In this article, DevOps influencer Sunil Mavadia points out the elements that lead to a more effective continuous delivery solution.
There are a lot of reasons for your organization to consider continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD). A quick Google search can show lists of reasons, mostly technical or business-related, that attempt to give enterprise IT impetus to move toward the various forms of DevOps. But a solid set of reasons, discussed occasionally, is worth considering because it has a separate appeal.
The speed of business today affects every part of the organization, and IT is no exception. That’s why traditional methods of developing and deploying software that split up the process into multiple teams and departments are being replaced by newer, more agile techniques such as DevOps. This removes silos to get people, process and tools working together to make the product delivery lifecycle faster and more predictive.
A combination of building great teams, establishing the culture, and setting up automation will enable you to have continuous delivery in your organization.
