A Bumpy Road to Continuous Delivery: Overcoming Technical and Organizational Challenges
We can agree that Continuous Delivery provides a great blueprint for a more reliable and rapid release process, however implementing a deployment pipeline capable of continuous releases does not happen overnight. There are often challenges to overcome from a technical and/or organization level. This talk aims to share first-hand enterprise experiences/challenges encountered while moving towards Continuous Delivery capabilities across legacy, brownfield, and greenfield applications. We will also discuss the tools and processes that proved valuable to moving this initiative forward.
