Managed CI/CD

Continious Inegration/Continious Delivery (sometimes: Continious Deployment)

Automation of continuous delivery and continuous integration of application development from DevOps experts

What is CI/CD 
CI/CD is one of the key components of the DevOps philosophy, which is also one of the best Agile practices.

It is a way of organizing processes and management principles that allow development teams to:

 

  • Minimize errors

  • Increase build speed

  • Improve product quality

  • Get feedback faster

 

This result is achieved through continuous automation and monitoring of all stages of development. CI/CD is often illustrated with an "endless loop" that reflects the principles of continuity and proactivity.

What is included in CI/CD 

Continuous Integration

CI (Continuous Integration) or continuous integration is the main CI/CD process. It implies that sections and copies of the code that individual developers write are combined in a central repository, where builds and tests with the participation of automation tools then take place.

At the heart of products that provide CI as a service is a source code version control system, which is carried out using tools such as Git.

CI is the key to the effectiveness of development teams.

Continuous delivery

CD (Continuous Delivery) focus on fluidity and automation of releases. Its essence is a continuous cycle of receiving feedback due to the fact that the end user receives updated versions of the product as often as possible, the feedback results are instantly taken into account in the next release.

Uses OLTP (Online Transaction Processing) and OLAP (Online Data Analysis) methods

Continuous deployment

CD (Continuous Deployment) or continuous deployment is the stage of release release, at which, using automated tests, the correctness and stability of the solution is checked for subsequent automatic deployment in a production environment. Occurs without human intervention.

Benefits of using CI/CD  
Accelerate development and change Accelerate development and change

Accelerate development and change

The time from task to quality launch is reduced, which allows you to release updates (= improve the product) faster compared to competitors that do not use CI / CD.

Ability to A/B/C/D testing before release Ability to A/B/C/D testing before release

Ability to A/B/C/D testing before release

You choose the most efficient build without wasting time deploying to the target environment

Automated testing allows you to identify problems at an early stage, which is impossible with the standard waterfall approach

What problems does Managed CI/CD solve

Despite all the advantages of CI / CD, teams that start to implement this approach from scratch face the following problems:

  • Lack of experience with methodology , confusion in terms. In order to get the result quickly enough, experience is needed, as well as the correct organization of the transition to new processes.

  • The complexity of the distribution of roles in the new team. The emergence of new processes = changes in old ones = time to adapt plus possible conflicts and stress in the team.

  • Lack of resources. A partial consequence of the previous point: those people who were engaged in “development” 90% of the time will now devote 80% (or less) to it, and devote the rest of the time to setting up CI / CD processes, which clearly does not contribute to development speed.

  • Safety. Teams moving to CI/CD often forget to prioritize security-related tasks. These may include storage of authorization data, threat analysis, planning an architecture that meets new requirements.
