Continuous Deployment allows us to automatically release every change that successfully passes through all stages of the production pipeline to customers without manual intervention.
CD can significantly speed up the feedback loop with customers and alleviate pressure on the team, as there is no longer a designated "release day." Instead, developers can focus on building software and see their work go live minutes after completing it. In this way, Continuous Deployment can streamline the development process and enhance efficiency.
Continuous Deployment (CD) Benefits
Streamlined development process
Streamline the software development process by automatically releasing changes as soon as they are ready, rather than waiting for a designated release day. This can help to reduce the time and effort required to release new features and updates.
Continuous Deployment allows developers to focus on building software, rather than worrying about the release process. This can help to improve efficiency and productivity within the development team.
Foster collaboration within the development team, as changes can be easily shared and reviewed in real-time.
Reduce the risk of software releases by automatically rolling back changes that fail tests or checks. This helps to ensure that only high-quality changes are deployed to production.
Accelerated feedback loop
Accelerate the feedback loop with customers, as changes can be deployed and tested in real-time. This allows organizations to quickly and easily identify and address any issues that may arise.
