Firing on All Cylinders With Continuous Delivery for Mobile

When everything is firing on all cylinders, DevOps can be awesome. By automating every application build – from development and QA, to pre-release testing and eventually to production – DevOps lets you release new code as frequently as your business needs to instead of continuously delayed releases. This, in turn, enables you to resolve issues and make important improvements with lightning speed, keeping you agile and helping you meet customer needs (and expectations) as well as respond to new challenges in a competitive landscape.

Software Development teams are continuously writing new and better code to achieve fast iteration cycles. They need an environment with improved and instant feedback loops on new innovations. Conversely, Operations teams are all about keeping production software stable and working, no matter what. They need an environment that alerts of any deviations in production. In general, the fewer changes to the environments are introduced, the better.

Because of this, there are great products and solutions to help developers building better apps.
