How Spinnaker is Shaping Delivery Excellence at SAP

By December 4, 2020Blog

Serge Poueme and Mohamed Bakr explain how SAP built a standardized CD service on top of Spinnaker. A central DevOps team provides tools, documentation, starter kits and help on Slack. Each team builds their own pipeline based on those kits and can build and deliver their project independently of everyone else. Common problems like auto-scaling and metrics collection are already solved by the premade kits, so teams can focus on more important problems.
