Deploy better code, more frequently with continuous delivery
Companies that want to introduce new features and capabilities to customers quickly and reliably are either already practicing (or working towards) continuous delivery — or they should be.
Doing continuous delivery effectively gives you the ability to:
- Respond faster to market changes — and to changes in business strategy.
- Get quicker, more frequent customer feedback.
- Have a happier, calmer work environment.
Continuous delivery requires the right practices and the right tools. But what are the best practices of continuous delivery, really, and what’s required to get started?
Our introductory continuous delivery guide takes the guesswork out of implementing CD:
- What continuous delivery is — and what it isn't.
- Why continuous integration and continuous delivery are so important to your business, and how they go hand-in-hand with DevOps.
- The tools that enable continuous delivery: monitoring tools, like Nagios and Splunk; continuous integration tools, like Jenkins and Bamboo; version control tools, like Git; and others.
- How each element of continuous delivery — from configuration management to continuous integration of frequent changes to automated testing and a pull-based architecture — enables you to ship better code to your customers, more frequently.
- How to make the cultural and technical changes you need to implement continuous delivery best practices in your organization.
