Release Frequency

How often do your clients get updates?

Description

Organizations that have adopted agile software development are seeing much higher quantities of releases. With the increasing popularity of agile development, a new approach to software releases known as Continuous delivery is starting to influence how software transitions from development to release. One goal of Continuous Delivery and DevOps is to release more reliable applications faster and more frequently. The movement of the application from a “build” through different environments to production as a “release” is part of the Continuous Delivery pipeline.


DevOps is a set of software development practices that combine software development (Dev) and information technology operations (Ops) to shorten the systems development life cycle while delivering features, fixes, and updates frequently in close alignment with business objectives.
