The Five Key ''-tions'' of Enterprise Scale Continuous Delivery
For a large organization, implementing and successfully adopting continuous delivery (CD) within an app system is a challenging, even daunting, task. The idea of overhauling a preexisting way of working can seem like taking a leap into the dark, which often causes executives to balk at the idea. Yet, the jump is not actually that large. The technical issues are well understood and there are plenty of tools available to get a basic, functional infrastructure ‘working’ with a bit of effort.
However, ‘working’ is not enough for modern enterprises. Large organizations are concerned with higher level capabilities and operational approaches that reflect the value of the actual scale at which they exist. These companies want to maximize and exploit the advantages of their size. Enterprises that cannot take advantage of their scale will struggle as competitors and market disruptors alike seek to alter the status quo.
