DevOps and continuous delivery can improve software quality and reduce risk by offering opportunities for testing and some non-obvious benefits to the software development cycle. By taking advantage of cloud computing and automated deployment, throughput can be improved while increasing the amount of testing and ensuring high quality. In this article, Gene and Tom point out some of these opportunities and offer suggestions for making the most of them.

Gene Gotimer is a senior architect at Coveros. As a consultant, Gene works with his customers build software better, faster, and more securely by introducing agile development and DevOps practices. He has many years of experience in web-based enterprise application design, and extensive experience establishing and using development ecosystems such as continuous integration, continuous delivery, DevOps, secure software development, source code control, build management, release management, issue tracking, project planning and tracking, and a variety of software assurance tools and supporting processes. Gene feels strongly that repeatability, quality, and security are all strongly intertwined; each of them is dependent on the other two, which just makes DevOps that much more crucial to software development.
