Background: This solutions architect set out to implement a smarter version control system across the technology team of this services-oriented oil and gas company. In doing so, it would be critical for the organization to embrace Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery. He approached the challenge of educating the team about CI/CD but found it to be less challenging than anticipated due primarily to the integration of Jenkins solutions.
Goals: Create internal functions for Office 365 products and internal integrations.
Solution & Results: By implementing a new CI/CD solution, we now have builds and releases for every module. Multiple teams can contribute to modules and help one another. We have increased productivity and allowed for collaboration within departments. This process is helping us move away from silos.****
Although we are still in the learning process, having a pipeline is the biggest win for us so far! Jenkins helped us visualize our steps and identify and respond to broken manual processes. We reduced our build times and release schedules! The results to date include:
