DevOps is no longer the new kid on the block; all industries are adopting it. Despite this adherence to principles of speed, velocity, and agility, release frequency appears to be lagging. Continuous deployment can help: Organizations leveraging an integrated continuous deployment tool set are able to make the dream of continuous releases to production a reality! However, Forrester’s Q1 2017 Global DevOps Benchmark Online Survey found that only 45% of organizations automate release to productionTo realize this dream, DevOps organizations must:

  • Reinvent the way they manage releases, using Agile methods coupled with new release and automation tools.
  • Apply new methods and automation to the complete stack of applications, middleware, and infrastructure.
  • Ensure that there is flexibility to deploy anywhere — cloud, on-premises, or hybrid.
