DevOps Intelligence Gathering: What Are We Measuring Here?

Source – adtmag.com There’s a business adage that goes, “We manage what we measure,” (or some variation thereof) — which is important insight, but easier said than done when it comes to DevOps.

Continuous Delivery is Not Continuous Deployment

Source – devops.com Every once in a while, it is worth revisiting a topic that flies under most people’s radar. The differences between continuous delivery and continuous deployment is one of those topics. While those steeped in DevOps are well-aware that software can be delivered daily (or even more frequently), deployment is less frequent, and more dependent upon both development and marketing cycles. Most CI/CD tools can and do crank out “deployable” apps on a daily basis, or even each time
