Streamline Software Delivery with CI/CD: Automate and Accelerate the Development Life Cycle

At Anbihian, we prioritize comprehensive integration and development solutions, including the essential practice of Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD). The CI/CD pipeline plays a pivotal role in enhancing software delivery throughout the software development life cycle.

CI/CD pipelines encompass a series of steps that must be executed before a new software version is released. By leveraging automation, CI/CD practices aim to improve the efficiency and quality of software delivery at every phase of the development process. Automation enables organizations to develop higher quality code in less time, ensuring seamless integration throughout development, testing, production, and monitoring stages. While each step of a CI/CD pipeline can be performed manually, the true value lies in harnessing the power of automation.

A CI/CD pipeline drives software development by automating crucial processes such as code building, testing, and deployment. By minimizing human error and maintaining consistency, automated pipelines enable efficient software release cycles. These pipelines incorporate various tools, including code compilation, unit testing, code analysis, security checks, and binary creation. In containerized environments, the pipeline extends to packaging code into container images, facilitating deployment across hybrid cloud environments.

CI/CD serves as the backbone of the DevOps methodology, fostering collaboration between development and IT operations teams for seamless software deployment. As custom applications increasingly differentiate businesses, the ability to release code rapidly has become a key competitive advantage.

While traditional CI/CD systems cater to pipelines using virtual machines, cloud-native application development brings additional benefits to CI/CD workflows. Leveraging the Tekton project, Anbihian enables the construction of Kubernetes-style delivery pipelines that provide full control over the life cycle of microservices. This eliminates the reliance on centralized teams for continuous integration server maintenance, plugin management, and configuration, empowering organizations with more autonomy and agility.
