Delivering apps to reach customers is core to enterprise business models, but it’s typically not a core competency. Application delivery and deployment models have outpaced companies’ ability to adopt them. Enterprises that don’t employ a Continuous Delivery model will be surpassed by competitors that do. Continuous Delivery of high-quality apps that meet business needs can mean the difference between innovating and dying.
As organizations look to ramp up their ability to deliver applications more and more quickly, unreliable deployments are an immediate bottleneck. Manual deployments based on outdated instructions, or semi-automated deployments using incomprehensible and unmaintainable scripting, are error-prone and time-consuming. Development and testing are stalled, causing frustration and delays.
Transform your existing release process to support DevOps and Continuous Delivery
The release process in most enterprises is a stressful and inefficient mix of outdated spreadsheets, confusion, manual catchup, and coordination. Release managers, Project Managers, QA, and DevOps teams have little advance warning of potential conflicts, delays or bottlenecks, especially across releases. This means little ability to act together and to act early to prevent surprises—resulting in errors and delays.
