The Ten Commandments Of Continuous Delivery
Everyone wants to implement continuous delivery. After all, the benefits are too big to be ignored. You can increase the speed of delivery, increase software quality, decrease costs, free people to dedicate time to activities that return value. Those improvements are like music to any decision maker’s ear. Especially if that person has a business background. If a tech geek can articulate the benefits continuous delivery brings to the table, when he asks a business representative for a budget, the response is almost always “Yes! Do it.”
But why did your attempt to implement continuous delivery fail? There cannot be one answer that fits all scenarios. However, some prerequisites and steps should be taken in almost all cases. The chances are that you missed some, if not all, of the commandments that we’ll explore in this session.
