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.

The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addresses many of the challenges faced by developers and operators as monolithic applications transition towards a distributed microservice architecture.
