I wanted to call out a new report that we have just released here at DevOps.com. The State of Continuous Delivery: The Big Shift by George Hulme, contributing editor here at DevOps.com. In this report George takes a look at the current state of Continuous Delivery and how it is helping to transform software development and deployment.
From the report:
Increasingly, it is the ability to continuously deliver reliable software that meets both immediate market demand and internal business needs. Rather than software being delivered in substantially-sized quarterly or even annual updates, it is more often delivered in never-ending, bite-sized feature updates. This is happening with all software now, from apps on our phones to large enterprise applications.
Of course that is the just the beginning. George interviews many leaders of the CD market and gives you his own keen analysis based on his many, many (did I say many) years covering the world of technology. You can read the rest of the report by downloading it for free here.
This is the first in a new series of reports that we have been working on here at DevOps.com. Written by our award winning editors and writers, they are snapshots on the current state of key areas of the DevOps and Container markets. The reports are researched and written by the authors independent of any sponsorships. After the report is complete, we do ask if any organization will like to sponsor but it has no effect on the authors opinions. For instance in this report, CloudBees, the Enterprise Jenkins company is the sponsor.
So stay tuned for more reports coming soon! If you are interested in sponsoring a report or would like to suggest a topic for another report please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime enjoy this look at the current state of Continuous Delivery.
