Over the course of the last decade, with the transition from Waterfall to Agile, this transformational shift has enabled Development teams to deliver products and services more frequently to ultimately benefit the customer and decrease time to market. This is enabled with underlying principles applying Automation increased collaboration (between Business & IT), higher velocity deployment and continuous feedback which provides major benefits upfront.

What is CI?
Continuous integration is a DevOps practice where code changes are regularly merged with a central repository of which automated builds and tests are run.
Identify and fix bugs quicker, improve quality and reduce validation and releases of new software updates with continuous integration practices.
What is CD?
Continuous delivery expands on continuous integration where code changes are systematically tried and tested in a way that allows for the release to production cycle. CD allows for all code changes to be deployed to a testing or production environment after the build stage, giving developers a deployment-ready build artefact that has passed through an automated testing process.
How do CI/CD frameworks interact to accelerate your businesses operations?
There are a few guiding principles that enable accelerated product and service delivery, which include automating and streamlining the software development lifecycle. Most of these practices are accomplished with proper decision making in areas such as architecture, tooling and technology.
One practice is to perform regular application code and release updates. This allows organizations innovate faster for their customers and drive at a higher rate of change while also managing risk along the way. From a quality engineering perspective, bringing more regular and less complex change aligns well to IT automation principles leading to earlier defect detection and more repeatable outcomes.
TLC applies this proven approach that shifts problem resolution to the left through comprehensive CI/CD processes, encountering issues earlier in the software development lifecycle while enhancing automation competency across build, deploy and testing phases.
