Every industry is being interrupted by the demands of the digital marketplace. Traditional approaches to business no longer work as they don’t meet the current expectations of the market and are ready for disruption by more flexible competitors. Leaders in digital alteration are accepting that digital (app) is the new customer interface and are focused on adopting and providing experiences on that interface.
Continuous Development, Continuous Integration is the new ideal for creating and improving web applications.
Continuous Integration is a key integral of agile and flexible development practices. Continuous Integration (CI) is a development practice that requires developers to integrate code into a shared repository. Each check-in is then confirmed by an automated build, allowing teams to detect problems early. By integrating regularly, errors can be detected quickly, and locate them more easily.
The value that Continuous Integration brings in is that it compels developers and team of developers to integrate their individual work with each others as early as possible. This exposes integration issues and conflicts on a regular basis. To make continuous integration work, developers have to communicate more and ensure that their work includes changes from other developers that may affect the code they are working on.
Continuous Deployment follows the testing that happens during Continuous Integration and forces changes to a production system.
Continuous Delivery is nothing but taking the concept of Continuous Integration to the next step. Once the application is built, it is delivered to the next stages in the application delivery life-cycle. The objective of Continuous Delivery is to get the new features and innovations that the developers are creating, out to the customer and user end as early as possible.
Leaders are fully integrating development, operations, security and business teams into closed loops for maximum impact, and offering services which enable and encourage innovation and development.
