Do my CI/CD Tools and Processes Need an Assessment?

Much like the human body, signs of a needed assessment come in the form of early symptoms of CI/CD related issues. These usually come in fairly small signs—and unfortunately often skipped.

As your business scales up, these symptoms will turn into real-world problems (that you need to address in real time!), costing you money, resources and most of all, your user/consumer’s trust.

There are a few common scenarios where we recommend business leaders that their CI/CD and/or Automated QA tools and processes be reviewed:

  • Poor quality or performance: If your software is prone to bugs, crashes, and other performance issues, it could indicate that your current CI/CD and/or Automated QA tools and processes are not effectively catching and resolving issues during development and testing
  • Slow release cycles: If your release cycles are slow and take a long time to deploy new features or updates, it could indicate that your current processes and tools are not efficient enough to support faster release cycles
  • High costs of development and maintenance: If the costs of developing and maintaining your software are too high, you’re likely not optimizing for cost-effectiveness
  • Lack of alignment with industry standards: If your current CI/CD and/or Automated QA processes or tools don’t align with industry standards and best practices, your organization could be at risk of falling behind competitors, facing compliance issues, and suffering from poor quality software
  • Lack of visibility and transparency: If you have limited visibility and transparency into your software development lifecycle, it could be a sign that your current CI/CD and /or Automated QA tools and processes are not providing enough insights and data to make informed decisions

The solution our team provides is a thorough review of your current CI/CD and/or Automated QA processes and tools to identify deficiencies and ensure alignment to best practices. Our assessment team are experts in identifying potential issues, providing actionable recommendations and solutions to ensure optimal CI/CD and/or Automated QA tools and processes.
