Across every industry, digital businesses are increasingly defined by those who make great software. As a result, software development teams are transforming their software operations to optimise for efficiency, quality, and reliability.
Continuous Integration (CI) is to automate building and testing software every time a developer pushes code to the repository. Continuous Deployment (CD) is to automate the deployment to a functional environment.
Still, the automation is not sufficient to maximise the agility needed for digital business. DevOps - a structured and consistent software development lifecycle across the organisation - embeds the advantage of CI/CD, the DevOps practice, ensures the software to be developed and deployed rapidly, reliably, and repeatedly within your organisation’s context.
Enterprises want to deliver their products/services faster and more consistently by both adopting a modern DevOps practice and to automate their CI/CD pipeline. However, changing this culture is traditionally difficult. Legacy software deployment takes a long time - the processes are highly manual and prone to error.
Businesses want to transform their software factories into an automated pipeline for CI/CD process, such as automated test suite and deployment.
