Why is it so painful to deploy new features and updates?
Your builds are breaking. Far too often when you deploy new features, old bugs come back to haunt you.
It’s so time-consuming to release new business functionality. It’s so hard to move your business forward when feature updates are difficult. But there’s a better way.
Suppose you can go from an idea for a change to deploying to production in a matter of hours or days. Old defects that you’ve already resolved stay resolved. You can respond faster to changing market conditions because you can deploy software faster and far more efficiently. You can comply with regulatory changes in your industry with way less grief than today.
How do I get there?
The foundation of a deployment pipeline is automated unit tests. These small programs describe the intended behaviour of your application. You run them frequently during development to ensure your production code behaves as intended, and you haven’t inadvertently reintroduced new bugs. Then you have an automated build server that detects any changes in your code base, and builds and tests your entire application. Upon a successful build, the build server automatically deploys your application to a test environment. Your business experts evaluate the application to make sure it meets their expectations, and provide feedback to your development team.
Once in place, this automated build-test-deploy cycle runs every day or even every few hours, thus ensuring defects are detected and fixed quickly. It enables you to respond quickly to changing business conditions.
We begin with Software Accelerator – for $997 CAD we’ll have a 90-minute video conference with you and your key people from your software development team. We’ll talk about the challenges you’re facing now. and where you want to be. We’ll walk through your current process and identify pain points. Then we’ll get into a presentation of what a delivery pipeline looks like when it’s implemented. at the end you get an action plan that outlines the steps you need to take to solve these deployment problems.
