Automate Delivery

Deliver value to customers quickly and safely

What is Continuous Delivery?


Continuous delivery is a development practice where teams release quality software frequently and predictably from source code to production in an automated fashion. The goal is to have each change automatically deployed to production and into the hands of your customers quickly and safely. 

An online survey of 500 software and IT professionals found that:

47%

of teams ship changes and receive customer feedback faster with a CI/CD solution.

Benefits of
Continuous Delivery

Continuous delivery adds value in three areas - velocity, productivity, and sustainability of software development teams.

Increase velocity

Responsibly move software updates from development to production quickly by automating your process.

Enable productivity

Remove manual, tedious tasks and let your team focus on what matters: building great software.

Secure sustainability

Automation gives companies a competitive advantage by responding to customer's need quicker and innovating faster.

Challenges of adopting
Continuous Delivery

Although there are upsides to adopting CI/CD practices, teams can struggle with the complexities and increasing speed.

Complexity

Most CI/CD tools are difficult to set up, update, and maintain, often times requiring custom knowledge from a specialized group of people.

Visibility

As development speed increases, teams find they lack visibility into what is being developed, deployed and released, where and by whom.

Traceability

Errors happen. Teams need to quickly be able to track all the changes to fix issues fast.

62%

of teams say manual testing prevents them from releasing faster.

See how Bitbucket's continuous delivery solution, Bitbucket Pipelines, and it's new integration with Jira Software are helping teams overcome these challenges.
