Continuous Integration- The Linchpin to a Successful Continuous Delivery Strategy
For most businesses in the software industry, software development extends beyond the single project or developer team. As development expands across multiple teams and project levels, maintaining cohesiveness can prove difficult. Without established procedures for managing parallel development at such a large scale, it is likely that quality and overall productivity will suffer. In today's fast-paced software environment, when every opportunity to obtain a competitive edge is crucial to a business’s success, having a continuously integrated development practice can provide an advantage.
AccuRev and SD Times recently administered a survey addressing the software industry to obtain data on companies’ adoption of Continuous Integration practices during software development.
Our speakers, Jon Jesse from AccuRev, and David Rubinstein of SD Times, discuss the reasons companies can become stuck at certain levels of Continuous Integration and practicing effectively. The webinar will also address key downfalls that occur within many companies that prevent effective Continuous Integration, as well as provide established best practices to help overcome these obstacles and lead to successful implementation.
