The book, which is aimed at managers looking for a short, clear introduction to the topic, champions the concept of Continuous Delivery in enabling organizations to build automated software delivery platforms for releasing high-quality applications into the hands of users and customers faster.
“The IT Manager’s Guide to Continuous Delivery: Delivering Software in Days, Instead of Months,” has been well received by CIOs, development managers and professionals in quality assurance, testing and operations (DevOps) who view the fast conversion of good ideas into marketable software as a critical business imperative that drives success.
Continuous Delivery is a set of processes and practices that radically removes waste from the software production process and creates an effective feedback loop with end users. The end result is rapid time-to-market of enterprise applications and mobile apps.
“IT Managers Guide to Continuous Delivery”presents measurable business benefits and is written for non-technical readers, starting with concrete advice on how to get started.
“The overwhelming interest for this book demonstrates that Continuous Delivery is gaining momentum at the executive level,” says co-author Andrew Phillips. “Releasing software quickly with high quality is the first key step…. The subsequent step is to rapidly collect feedback from users to guide the next set of ideas for further improvements. Adopting Continuous Delivery is critical because more and more cases prove that it truly works.”
