3 Barriers to Continuous Delivery

What is Continuous Delivery?

Continuous delivery is a software engineering approach in which teams produce software in short cycles, ensuring that the software can be reliably released at any time.

Sounds pretty great, right? New features can be added quickly, and there is always a usable release ready to go. So why are only 65% of organizations implementing continuous delivery? Studies show that the barriers for companies moving to implement Continuous delivery are integrating automation technologies, people, and collaboration platforms.

Integrating automation technologies

Change always comes with growing pains. Integrating new technologies with legacy software can be challenging, but getting to continuous delivery, releasing better software, faster, is worth the challenge.

People

The race for IT talent is fierce, and finding the right fit for your team is a challenge. Continuous delivery is cutting edge technology and there’s naturally a limited number of people with experience.

Collaboration Platforms

Because continuous delivery aims to streamline the development process, it means your collaboration platform needs to be able to keep up with the flow of information between teams.

These barriers can look pretty intimidating when you begin the process of continuous delivery, but we have the people, process, and tools to help you release the best software for your customers.
