CI/CD Services – Integrate and Automate DevOps

DevOps culture has gained rapid momentum in the digital world as it enables organizations to adopt agile software delivery methodologies like Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD).

These methodologies enable instant feedback loops, faster issue resolution, improved software quality, and cost reductions, all while meeting the ever-increasing demand to deliver better software faster. Thus, CI/CD practices have become the de-facto software delivery standards across the IT industry.

CI/CD introduces continuous automation and continuous monitoring throughout the lifecycle of software delivery, from build, integration, and testing to delivery and deployment.

Together, these methodologies are often referred to as a CI/CD pipeline.

Introduction: CI and CD

  • Continuous Integration (CI)

Continuous Integration (CI) is the practice of continually merging code changes from all developers into a shared repository, after which automated builds and tests are carried out.

It enables developers to integrate code into a shared repository frequently, preferably several times a day. Each integration is then checked by an automated build and automated tests.

The key benefits of CI are that you can identify and fix bugs quicker, enhance software quality, and reduce the time to validate and release new software updates.

  • Continuous Delivery (CD)

Continuous Delivery (CD) is a software development practice where code changes are automatically built, tested, configured, and prepared for a release to production. It expands upon CI by deploying all code changes to the testing and production environments after the build stage.

With continuous delivery, developers can automate testing beyond just unit tests and verify code updates across multiple dimensions before deploying to customers. Thus, developers can validate updates more thoroughly and discover issues pre-emptively.

  • Continuous Deployment – The Other CD

The prime difference between continuous delivery and continuous deployment is the need for manual approval to update to production. Continuous deployment involves automated deployment of the software artifact to the production environment without explicit approval.
