“Looking at the latest ‘State of Agile Report’, continuous integration was the third highest cited agile practice (with 53% of organisations indicated they had implemented some for CI), while continuous delivery was fifth (with 40%). Meanwhile, 73% of respondents stated that they either currently have, or are planning to have, a DevOps initiative in their organisation.”
“More organizations have matured from CI to CI/CD, but their paths differ as do their pipelines and results. Most enterprises are implementing a mix of open source, commercial and even home-grown tools, and they’re looking for answers.
One place to look is the Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF) which is home to many of the fastest-growing CI/CD open-source projects. The CDF fosters vendor-neutral collaboration among developers, end users and vendors to further best practices and industry specifications. DeployHub CEO and co-founder Tracy Ragan, who serves as the CDF general membership board representative, provides additional insight in this Q&A.”
“The Continuous Delivery Foundation is looking to draw in more members and projects as it heads towards its first birthday, with Microsoft top of the organisation’s hit list.
The CDF formed back in March 2019, aiming to evangelize CI/CD as methodologies, and define/document best practices in and out of the cloud. Founder members included CloudBees and Google – it is home to the original Jenkins project, and Jenkins X, the Kubernetes-focused CI/CD platform, as well as the Google spawned Tekton.
But Tracy Miranda, CloudBees’ director of open source and a member of the CDF’s board, said the organisation had, and needed, a long list of organisations and projects it still wanted to attract, including those in direct competition to CloudBees and Google.”
Kim Lewandowski, Governing Board chair of the Continuous Development Foundation, outlines how the CI/CD group got started and where it’s going.
“…The foundation has both a Technical Oversight Committee and a Governing Board to manage the organization. Google’s Kim Lewandowski currently serves as the Governing Board chair for the CDF, helping to lead the organization and set direction. In an interview with ITPro Today, Lewandowski shares her views on the current state of the DevOps landscape and outlines where the CDF is headed in the months ahead.”
DevOps perspective provided by CD Foundation Premier Member CloudBees CEO Sacha Labourey – In section on “DevOps Competition Among Software Stocks”:
Many companies focus on making new apps available for customers in the internet cloud. That way they can be updated frequently.
Sacha Labourey, chief executive of CloudBees, says online competitors are disrupting the banking industry. These rivals focus on niches, like home loans.
“We don’t see any business shielded from software innovation,” he said. “It’s a new way to compete and it’s redefining many industries.”
