Get Your Copy: The IT Manager's Guide to Continuous Delivery



IT Manager's Guide to Continuous Delivery (1)

If you haven’t heard already, four software development experts at XebiaLabs have just published a new book—The Manager’s Guide to Continuous Delivery. It’s something every development team needs to learn -- the keys to delivering software in days, instead of months. Time is money, after all.

The authors—XebiaLab’s Andrew Phillips, and from Xebia, Michiel Sens, Adriaan de Jonge, and Mark van Holsteijn—show you how to turn good ideas into marketable features quickly—an imperative for every enterprise. The group also explains how to deliver high-quality features faster to end users. Just as importantly, they emphasize the need to rapidly collect feedback from end users to guide your next set of ideas. First deliver features better. Then deliver better features better! Why is Continuous Delivery so critical? Complex, “big bang” releases with slow, error-prone manual processes, repeated handovers and delays lead to failures in production, poor quality and dissatisfied users. If you want to remain ahead of your competitors, you need to do better than that. As the book describes, Continuous Delivery provides a set of processes and practices that radically removes waste from your software production process. In today’s competitive economic environment, every software development team must consider this game-changing approach. Continuous Delivery can reduce your time-to-market from weeks and months to days or even hours. To start your path to Continuous Delivery and to experience the benefits of delivering business value quickly, check out the book here.
