At CodiLime, we build CI/CD pipelines from scratch and optimize existing ones. We also integrate and manage hardware and testing frameworks, including ones we have built for clients. In all our solutions, we strive to deliver all of the benefits of automation.
CI/CD stands for Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Deployment or Continuous Delivery (CD).
Continuous Integration encompasses the automated testing and merging of new code with existing software to ensure quality and get new features to market faster. Development teams use automation tools to automatically test and merge new code as seamlessly as possible.
Continuous Delivery is a natural follow-up to CI. New code is released faster, more frequently and in smaller batches. The entire process is automated, boosting the quality of the software delivered. Additionally, an iterative approach with frequent feedback from the client ensures that the final product meets the initial requirements.
Continuous Deployment means that every change in the code should be deployed regularly and automatically in production or in a production-like environment. The entire process should be standardized, easily reproducible and done with minimal manual effort.
QA automation adds value to your CI/CD pipeline by allowing you to:
