Continuous integration and continuous delivery are powerful software development practices that have the power to radically transform your development workflow for the better.
The term CI/CD conflates Continuous Integration (CI) with Continuous Delivery (CD), implying that CI automatically leads to CD. This is a mistake that will undercut your ability to achieve efficient software delivery. CI is only one of several steps and practices that DevOps teams need to implement in order to achieve CD and a complete CI/CD pipeline.
Read our latest whitepaper which details the hurdles that DevOps teams must clear in order to move from CI to CD and the best practices for making the difficult leap. It is designed as a resource for DevOps practitioners who want to take full advantage of the efficiencies and operational advantages that CD enables, yet struggle to overcome conceptual, cultural and technological challenges.
Three things you’ll learn:
- The benefits of continuous delivery
- Technical and organizational challenges that you might encounter
- 5 steps to effectively transition from CI to CD
