Getting Started with Continuous Delivery
Today, the application economy is driving destruction of markets and business models as companies promote their brand, products, and services through their web and mobile applications. You need to develop applications quickly and on a continuous basis at a quality and a lower cost. Adopting an end-to-end continuous delivery software factory is the only way to make that happen.
Continuous delivery helps you bring higher quality software to the market. It helps you to continuously improve the way you take an idea, plan it, build it, test it and orchestrate it. By integrating the processes in the tool chain across to all these stages, you can eliminate the friction points in your software development life-cycle, while aligning your applications with your organization's business objectives.
You can solve most developments by applying the three pillars of continuous delivery that work hand-in-hand. The three components are improving velocity of development, becoming an agile testing team, and automating the code pipeline end-to-end. There are several ways to improve development velocity.
Implementing an agile approach to development can reduce the cost and time to deliver by thirty to fifty percent when compared to a water-based approach. And as its composite applications become the norm, its solutions can help you manage and secure API throughout the life-cycle. The ability to visualize third-party and back-end services will relieve the constrained resources and help eliminate friction in your development process.
To become an agile testing team, automation is essential. With automated testing, especially of API, you can cover more tests at a lower cost. Don't waste money and time setting up physical environments for testing. Instead, simulate them to mimic the production environments needed to run the right test at the right time.
To get better test results, you need to take production data to drive your test cases. Contact us today for more information on continuous delivery.
