The continuous delivery journey starts by examining your end-to-end value stream with the quest to eliminate barriers between ideas and outcomes. Your journey will take you from manual or scripted processes to automated, end-to-end processes—focusing on transforming culture, processes and tooling as you progress. With more automation comes the opportunity to fully optimize the efficiency and quality of the continuous delivery pipeline—delivering high-quality apps on demand.
With an automated continuous delivery pipeline in place, enterprises can simplify and standardize their delivery processes and, ultimately, roll out higher-quality releases with greater frequency. They’ll be able to plan, execute and govern releases as a connected team, making them more responsive to changing requirements. Likewise, it will become easier to scale in response to the growing volume of applications, releases, environments and dependencies. And, they’ll have the freedom to leverage data in ways that enable continuous improvements to quality, processes, time to resolution and team productivity.
