Delivering high-quality software that keeps up with business and consumer needs can be a painful, risky and time-consuming ordeal. Now there are tools and processes available and ways of delivering software to radically improve this process. One of these is continuous delivery, which has emerged as an important strategy for development teams to continuously build, test, and deploy software through incremental change. This reduces the headaches associated with major software releases and allows business application owners to respond to new market opportunities quickly. But is it for enterprises accustomed to 6 to 12 month software release cycles? And does a traditional enterprise have to move to a devops org structure to get there?
