First of all, I would like to introduce Benjamin Wootton who is the author of this Whitepaper. For this reason I will provide you with his Linkedin summary profile.
Benjamin is the Co-Founder and Principal Consultant at Contino, a consultancy that help organizations apply DevOps, Continuous Delivery and Pragmatic agile practices to improve the outcomes of custom software delivery projects.
Prior to this, I built over a decade of experience as a hands-on agile software developer and team lead, primarily working on low latency, high frequency trading systems based on the Java/JVM/Linux stack.
Benjamin experienced in applying agile software development methods, having worked within and led many SCRUM teams and supported a number of organization wide agile transformations.
Though Benjamin a software engineer at heart, Benjamin has a strong DevOps and Operations focus, having been responsible for both the development and management of systems with very high requirements for uptime, robustness, scalability, performance and security.
Benjamin a strong believer in the potential of the DevOps and Continuous Delivery movements to revolutionize software delivery in terms of efficiency, quality and delivered business value. To this end, Benjamin co-founded Contino to help more organizations improve the results they achieve from their custom software delivery efforts through the successful adoption of these practices.
It is called “Achieving Rapid Delivery of High Quality Software with Continuous Delivery”.
In the first page the Whitepaper explains about Objectives of Continuous Delivery which are:
- Deliver software faster and more frequently, getting valuable new features into production as early as possible;
- Increase software quality, system uptime and stability;
- Reduce release risk;
- Reduce or avoid failed deployments into both test and production environments;
- Reduce waste and increase efficiency in the development and software release process.
