Continuous delivery is not a new concept in application development and companies are looking to see how they can incorporate it. With more traditional releases, companies pack in as many features as possible and make significant changes to the software. This typically results in a longer release cycle. However, the goal of continuous delivery is that your changes to the code base are more incremental so you have a shorter release cycle and more frequent releases.
Organizations are looking at implementing this approach because they recognize that one of the benefits of more frequent releases is a shorter feedback loop. Get it in the hands of your customers more quickly and they can tell you what’s working and what’s not. Adjust and repeat. Delivering a production-ready build frequently increases the organization’s responsiveness to customers’ demands, and ultimately gives them the competitive edge in the market.
We realize that it can be difficult for companies to move to this delivery model, so we’re hosting a webinar on November 27 at 10am PST that will showcase some tools to help make it possible. The webinar, Continuous Delivery with Jenkins and Stackato, will outline what it is and why it’s important. Stackato Cloud Engineer, Ho MIng Li, and Developer Evangelist, John Wetherill, will be demonstrating how Jenkins, a continuous integration server, combined with Stackato, an application development and deployment platform, can work together to help organizations move towards their goal of implementing continuous delivery. More details about the event and how to register can be found below.
