CI/CD introduces automation into app development, allowing organizations to frequently deliver apps to customers. CI/CD incorporates the concepts of continuous integration, continuous delivery, and continuous deployment.
A pipeline is a process that drives software development through a path of building, testing, and deploying code. By automating the process, the objective is to minimize human error and maintain a consistent process for how software is released. Tools that are included in the pipeline could include compiling code, unit tests, code analysis, security, and binaries creation. For containerized environments, this pipeline would also include packaging the code into a container image to be deployed across a hybrid cloud.
CI/CD is the backbone of a DevOps methodology, bringing Developers and IT Operations teams together to deploy software. As custom applications become key to how companies differentiate, the rate at which code can be released has become a competitive differentiator.
Use standard Tekton CRDs to define pipelines that run as containers and scale on-demand.
