In this blog, we will be taking a look at the continuous deployment part of the DevOps process,
This is the next step of the continuous integration process, this part of DevOps is all about reducing the time associated with the software development cycle.
Man and Machines
Whether be it testing, coding or developing, continuous deployment is supposed to be the solution to all those problems. Unlike the continuous integration process, the continuous deployment process is more dependent on tools rather than talent. The process is overseen by tools which automate the infrastructure to ensure that continuous deployment is smoothly achieved. The dependence on tools is due to the fact that new codes are directly integrated into the live program, so there are many things that can go wrong. The tools give the developers the right the right backup such as giving the ability to roll back changes and alert developers if there is any small problem with the codes.
WIth continuous deployment process, the risks and rewards come equally, there is a good reason why continuous deployment is said to be the trickiest part of the DevOps process. There is the risk that the existing codes do not assimilate the new codes as intended. A problem could arise after a specific period of time as well. Improvement to the application which does not include the feedbacks of the average end user is not really an improvement, the developers need to keep in mind the demands of the end user and their own limitation as well. Regular deployments do not automatically translate to quality, the deployments need to better the application holistically.
If everything goes according to the plan, the end user gets an application which is better than its competition in every sense of the word. While this may sound quite pale to all the efforts, but one should remember that given the competition out there, with continuous deployment your application will always manage to stand out from the competition. Continuous only sounds scary and it is, but with best the DevOps practises an organization can easily overcome those fears.
