Today's modern development teams are challenged to deliver and operate high-quality products for their customers at an increasingly rapid pace. Lean and Agile ideas are now widely utilised to help achieve this aim, however it is now accepted that new engineering disciplines are required across the delivery pipeline. We need to incorporate ideas from “Continuous Delivery” and “DevOps” into our software development and operate lifecycle.
At a fundamental level, Continuous Delivery is all about the reducing the waste in the process for releasing software rapidly and reliably into the hands of customers. It is a set of principles and practices that are generally injected into the main artery of a project.
We hear and see many different interpretations of “DevOps”. To us it means “Considering and designing for the deployment and operation of applications as an integral part of the development process, achieved through multi-disciplinary teams working in close collaboration”.
