A report by the Standish Group, a technology research advisory organization, tells us that typically, 31% of software projects today get canceled before completion, and 52% can run as much as 189% over budget. With statistics like these, there’s little wonder why software development professionals are looking for effective alternatives to traditional release engineering. In this program, Chas Mastin, Vice President of Engineering and R&D at Control Group, a technology and design company, explores one such development alternative, aptly called Continuous Delivery. After viewing this program, technology and business professionals alike will better understand the benefits and challenges that CD brings to the software development process. After successfully completing this segment, you should be able to: understand the background and essentials of Continuous Delivery, recognize the benefits and challenges of implementing and sustaining CD, and identify best practices for success with CD.
