Lack of Automation Presents Obstacle to Timely Code Delivery
May 20, 2019
by the trend of microservices creating
complexity in code delivery and every
company becoming a technology company, the
software development community is under
enormous pressure to deliver high-quality,
leading-edge, and scalable code to an
insatiable market. Data from a new survey by
Codefresh exposes the relentless pressure,
with 32 percent reporting they were not
using any CI/CD tools at all, and about 60
percent agreeing that their organizations
are “not using the right amount of
automation to enable individual developers
to increase velocity.”
• 63.6% said it takes more than two weeks for a commit to reach production with nearly a third only releasing quarterly.
• In contrast, 18.5% responded they deploy at least once daily.
• 39% reported that less than 10% of their company’s processes are automated from Git commit to code running in production.
• 21.4% said they are not using cloud native architectures because they are overwhelmed by the prospect.
