Mature agile organizations are introducing continuous delivery as a crucial step to realize their goal of delivering business value rapidly. Andrew Phillips highlights implementation issues about how agile development can fit with enterprise release management policies and governance needs. Andrew outlines proven practices and selection criteria for tools to help you address these issues. Then, he presents a DevOps case study demonstrating the continuous delivery process for building, packaging, deploying, and testing a complex application. Find out about deployment support for server and resource configurations, application binaries, database upgrades and rollbacks, messaging, and enterprise service buses. With the right tools and processes you can develop an open, extensible framework that supports additional services and platforms. Examine how integration with environment provisioning tools such as the open source Puppet tool enables "ready-for-deployment" development and testing environments. Leave with a new understanding of how DevOps opens the door to faster delivery and happier customers.

  • 2. Andrew Phillips XebiaLabs, Inc. An early believer in the ability of Java to deliver enterprise-grade software, Andrew Phillips quickly focused on the development of high-throughput, resilient, and scalable Java EE applications. After working on concurrency and high performance development for a succession of multinationals, Andrew joined agile specialists Xebia and is now VP Products for XebiaLabs, providers of the industry-leading release automation solution, Deployit. A cloud, service delivery, and automation expert, Andrew has been part of the shift to more automated application delivery platforms. He likes to stay up-to-date with technical reality by contributing to cutting-edge projects, including Multiverse, the STM implementation behind Akka, and jclouds, the leading Java cloud library.

  • 5. Agenda • Agile hits the Delivery Wall • Continuous Delivery & DevOps • Agile Automation Landscape: Best Practices • A Case Study • Demo • Q&A
  • 6. Agile: Made for Today’s Delivery Challenge • Competitive market situation • IT services key differentiating factor for many industries • Pressure to get new types of services out to market quickly • • Pressure to get more and more features in existing services to market Adoption curve bears out the significance of Agile
  • 7. The Promise of Agile • Principle #1 of the Agile Manifesto: “Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software.” agilemanifesto.org/principles.html
  • 8. How Much Delivery? • Deliver production-ready software at the end of every iteration... • How many organisations actually deploy this software to production? • What is the business value of unreleased software?
  • 9. The Delivery Wall • In practice, many organisations are hitting a “delivery wall” Develop Check in Deploy to Test Unit test Integration Test Package Deploy to QA Deploy to Dev Acceptance Test Smoke Test Deploy to Prod Value
  • 10. The Delivery Wall • In practice, many organisations are hitting a “delivery wall” Develop Check in Deploy to Test Unit test Integration Test Package Deploy to QA Deploy to Dev Acceptance Test Smoke Test Deploy to Prod Value
  • 11. The Delivery Wall • In practice, many organisations are hitting a “delivery wall” Develop Check in Deploy to Test Unit test Integration Test Package Deploy to QA Deploy to Dev Acceptance Test Smoke Test Deploy to Prod Value
  • 12. The Delivery Wall • Wall is often related to increasing release effort and control due to more complex environments and release management processes Develop Check in Deploy to Test Unit test Integration Test Package Deploy to QA Deploy to Dev Acceptance Test Smoke Test Deploy to Prod Value
  • 13. Removing the Wall • In order to realise principle #1 of the Agile Manifesto, we need to eliminate The Wall • Key initiatives: Continuous Delivery & DevOps • Set deployment to production as the goal
  • 14. Continuous Delivery • Why stop with continuous code integration and unit testing? • Build a delivery pipeline!
  • 15. DevOps • Project teams need to be able to truly take the project from end to end Development & Operations competencies and responsibilities shared and communicated throughout the project lifecycle • Develop Check in Deploy to Test Unit test Integration Test Package Deploy to QA Deploy to Dev Acceptance Test Smoke Test Deploy to Prod Value
  • 16. Continuous Delivery, DevOps & Automation • Continuous Delivery & DevOps are processes – really, mindsets • You can't “do CD” or “do DevOps” just by installing some big toolsuite • Manual and error-prone processes key part of the bottleneck Automation (testing, deployment, environment provisioning etc.) essential part of the solution picture •
  • 17. “The RM Challenge” Key challenge: how to combine increased “flow to production” with standards-based Release Management processes? • • Can our current processes support the flow in their current form? • Can we automate certain Release Management requirements? • Can we trust automated Release Management requirements?
