If you are not doing, or not going in the direction of doing, Continuous Delivery (CD) I would say you are going down to the wrong path. Not saying it is an easy path (I would mainly blame the culture of avoiding/blocking changes), just saying that you should start thinking on its benefits and also you should start trying out those techniques.
It is important to mention that this post will not discuss Continuous Delivery strategies, techniques or patterns. For that you should read the Jezz Humble’s book and search for it on web. I’m sure you will find hundreds of wonderful materials on this subject. This post focus mainly on Continuous Delivery benefits.
