Infographic: Continuous Delivery Adoption [Guest Blog]

by Jessie Newell, Blog Administrator at Perforce

This article was originally published on the Perforce Blog.

We recently commissioned an independent study on Continuous Delivery. Now, you might ask, “what is this so called ‘Continuous Delivery’ and why should I care?” Well, that’s exactly what we set out to determine. Continuous Delivery is a methodology that automates and streamlines software development and speeds up release lifecycles. We polled 600 IT professionals across the U.S. and the U.K. to find out if they knew what Continuous Delivery is, if they were practicing it, and if they believed it would help them get ahead. The survey revealed that not only are the majority of respondents familiar with CD, but 65% of have adopted the practice for at least one project and nearly 50% believe their competitors are practicing it! So what are you waiting for?

Here's an infographic that shows these and other insights from the survey.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might slip up with the wrong focus, how to manage change and risk in all three areas, what is possible and what is not, where to start, and especially how new structures, processes, and technologies can help drive a new DevOps culture.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.

CI/CD is conceptually straightforward, yet often technically intricate to implement since it requires time and opportunities to develop intimate understanding on not only DevOps processes and operations, but likely product integrations with multiple platforms. This session intends to bridge the gap by offering an intense learning experience while witnessing the processes and operations to build from zero to a simple, yet functional CI/CD pipeline integrated with Jenkins, Github, Docker and Azure.
