The Importance of Automating the End to End Pipeline for Continuous Delivery
To implement an effective Continuous Delivery methodology, enterprises must integrate, orchestrate, automate, and manage potentially hundreds of disparate point tools and environments used across their development, operations, and IT organizations.
Some believe that they have implemented an automated CD methodology just because their individual groups (silos) are using automated tools. But, if one examines the flow between these groups, what is more likely found is a scenario riddled with manual handoffs.
Besides being error prone, this manual interaction is slow, does not provide a ‘single pane of glass’ visibility and control of the entire end-to-end pipeline, and doesn’t efficiently implement CD.
