Low risk releases. The primary goal of continuousdelivery is to make software deployments painless, low-risk eventsthat can be performed at any time, on demand. By applying patterns such asblue-green deployments it is relatively straightforward to achievezero-downtime deployments that are undetectable to users.
Higher quality. When developers have automated tools thatdiscover regressions within minutes, teams are freed to focus theireffort on user research and higher level testing activities such as exploratorytesting, usability testing, and performance and security testing. Bybuilding a deployment pipeline, these activities can be performedcontinuously throughout the delivery process, ensuring quality isbuilt in to products and services from the beginning. 2b1af7f3a8
