Knowing the benefits of CI/CD tools can let you know how important it is. Implementing CI and CD in your projects can provide your software with a lot of benefits that are indispensable. To know more about those benefits keep reading.
Using CI/CD tools enhances the code quality. Working separately to fix a problem will take more time and effort. However, when developers can merge their code in one place, meaning all of them can collaborate to fix code issues.
When the code quality is enhanced it means the security of the code is enhanced as well. CI/CD tools give you the ability to test your project and check for bugs and code issues and let you know the problem and how critical it is. Not only that, also you have the control of who can access the repository and who can not. Which allows you to give access only to people who are trustful.
Bugs can cost a lot if not discovered by the project team and fixed quickly. Discovering the problem before something happens saves your money, project, and data.
When you release updates you are providing your users with up to date and clean apps. which guarantee more security for users and that lead to gaining user trust. Furthermore, you can add new features to the software frequently.
CI/CD tools can help you in fixing the non-critical issues in the team’s backlog before they become critical issues. And before the software reach to users and affect their usage which may lead in making user using other software.
In the end, I have mentioned a few from a lot more of CI/CD tools benefits. Which enhance code quality, code security, eliminate cost, updates, and backlog. These benefits tell us how important CI/CD tools are.
“When it comes to IT operations, most of the company sometimes is organized by functionality and ends up creating a very narrow and silo unit where the operations team loses sight of what they are doing, it is not about writing programs and code, or performing security audit and testing. It is about product quality and great business function software that address business requirements and fulfil target users needs. This is why, the modern trends toward consolidated CI/CD tool chain for secure DevOps or DevSecOps or Value Stream management is all about to unified and streamline the value for the operations and development, so they will have complete visibility of how everything is working together.” added by Vincent Lim, E-SPIN Group Subject Matters Expert and Consultant.
