Continuous Delivery

Continuous Delivery is a set of practices and principles aimed at building, testing and releasing software faster and more frequently, with increased quality and greater visibility. Building, testing and releasing software is often one of the most painful and frustrating parts of software delivery. Days and weeks can be lost wrestling with builds and deployments; constant anxiety, fear of failure and regular rollbacks are all too common. The business stake holders are frustrated when "development complete" code cannot be released on time resulting in a lost market opportunity.
The IT benefits of Continuous Delivery:

Empowering teams: Continuous delivery is enabled by a deployment pipeline, which is a pull system.Testers, developers, operations, and others can self-service the application version into an environment of their choice.
Reducing errors: Ensuring the correct version, configuration, database schema, etc. is applied the same way every time through automation.

The Business benefits of Continuous Delivery:
Competitive advantage - The ability to launch new ideas to your customers faster than competitors are an ideal offensive or defensive capability. Make competitors react to your moves. Greater responsiveness - The ability to push releases to customers on demand makes you a thought leader when new opportunities arise. Build the right thing - CD lets you explore new ideas and market test them (A/B Test) quickly with significantly less effort and cost.
