Ericsson User Story

New User Story: Developing Complete End-to-End CI/CD Pipelines at Ericsson

By Blog, Staff

The second CD Foundation User Story is now available: Developing Complete End-to-End CI/CD Pipelines at Ericsson.

This time around, Ericsson shares how they improved on scalability and observability by introducing a common event protocol in their CI/CD pipelines that sends over 3 million events per day, to benefit their 20K+ developers.

“Ericsson is actively contributing to the Continuous Delivery Foundation through various SIGs and also to the CDEvents project. Ericsson also held an end-user seat in the CDF TOC up until last month. We believe it is important to be involved in this foundation as an end-user to make sure our needs in the CI/CD space are catered for in the various open source projects we are using internally.

“Ericsson took part in creating the CDEvents project and is highly involved in the progression of the CDEvents protocol. This blog post describes Ericsson’s path to an event-driven CI/CD solution.”

Emil Bäckmark, CI/CD Architect, Ericsson

Thank you to the authors:

  • Kristofer Hallén, Principal Developer, CI Tools Architect
  • Emil Bäckmark, CI/CD Architect
  • Mattias Linnér, CI/CD System Architect

Ericsson has been very involved in the CD Foundation for many years now, even winning the CDF End User Award in 2022. Emil Bäckmark served on the CDF Technical Oversight Committee as an end user representative between May 2022 and May 2023 and also is the co-chair of the CDEvents project as well as the Events Special Interest Group (SIG).

What are CDF User Stories?

The CDF User Stories Program features real-world use cases from companies embracing the change brought by Continuous Delivery, increasing their ability to deliver software with security and speed. The goal for the stories is to show the impact of adopting Continuous Delivery as a software development practice along with enabling CD technologies, (such as the CDF projects) the steps taken by respective organizations, and the additional benefits these resulted in improving the developer experience and productivity.

It’s a valuable resource for organizations that want to adopt Continuous Delivery and open source technologies because it showcases organizational leaders in their field.

You can read the first user story by Fidelity Investments: Securing Fidelity Investments’ Software Supply Chain.
