Free your mind!Continous Delivery is about freeing up your mind and your time for more important things.
Continuous Delivery sounds nice, right? But getting everything ready for deployment just takes time! There’s documentation to prepare, testing to be conducted, and you need to coordinate across teams, maybe even across departments.
So Continous Delivery just won’t work in your situation, right? Besides, you know you’d never actually need to deploy more frequently, anyway.
Continuous Delivery is exactly what you need. Even if you know for a fact* that you’ll never actually deploy to live customers more frequently than you do now.
You see, Continuous Delivery isn’t just about delivering or deploying software more frequently. It’s really much more about knowing that you can. It’s about trusting your deployment process, because it’s boring. It’s about knowing what goes into a deployment, before the deployment is needed, and having everything ready ahead of time.
Continous Delivery is about freeing up your mind and your time for more important things.
*Fun fact: I’ve never seen a team that wasn’t glad that they could deploy more frequently, once they had CD in place.
Well, some good came from it
After a failed monster deployment, we're finally switching to continuous deployment.
