How to Ensure Continuous Delivery in Agile Testing Cycles

Thursday March 3, 2016

Continuous Delivery (CD) is a set of best practices to improve the process of software delivery in the software development lifecycle and ensure releases of quality software on a continuous basis. The goal of continuous delivery is to ensure reliable and repeatable deployments of software in any production environment.

Since this methodology works in line with Continuous Integration which involves making continuous changes to the software code and integrating it with the development environment for further testing and validation, it sometimes becomes difficult to deliver better, faster and continuously due to insufficient resources and inefficient processes. The difficulty in coping up continuously with development and deployment environments further delay the project deadlines.

  1. Follow the mantra ‘Test Early and Test Often’
