Continuous Discussions (#c9d9) Podcast, Episode 62: Coordinating CD-style and Traditional Releases

This morning on Continuous Discussions (#c9d9) podcast, we discussed CD and ‘traditional’ release pipelines. As more organizations adopt DevOps, and the cadence and velocity of software releases increases – teams struggle to coordinate the growing number of concurrent delivery pipelines.

  • What are some challenges for streamlining software releases – both ‘traditional’ ones, alongside CD-style pipelines?
  • What are some tips for effectively managing today’s ‘release-explosion’ – at scale?

Tune in to hear about:

  • What our panelists think about Gartner’s definition of Bimodal IT, and how it comes into play for today’s organizations?
  • What are the “Sorcerer’s Apprentice” challenges with today’s release pipelines in the enterprise?
  • How to support both ‘big bang’ legacy releases, alongside CD pipelines, and the more modern technologies – such as microservices and containers?
