Is Your Software Development Process as Safe as it Could Be

As a software development company or a developer, you may feel that your development process is secure with version control tools like Git and Subversion, allowing you to revert to previous code versions if necessary. However, we feel that incorporating services like Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) can make your development process even safer and more efficient.

What is Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery?

In a nutshell, CI/CD is the combined practice of continuous integration and continuous delivery or continuous deployment. Essentially, it's a way to streamline your software delivery process so that new features are released faster and with fewer errors. 


How Does CI/CD Work?

There are a few different ways to set up a CI/CD pipeline, but the basic idea is that you have a central server where your code is stored (usually in a Git repository) and multiple developers working on that code. Whenever a developer makes a change, they push their code to the central server where it is automatically built and tested. If the build and test are successful, the changes are automatically deployed to production; if not, the developer is notified so they can fix the errors. 
 

Why Should You Use CI/CD?

There are many benefits of using CI/CD, but here are just a few: 

  • Save time by automating repetitive tasks like builds and deployments; 
     
  • Find and fix errors faster thanks to automated testing; 
     
  • Reduce the risk of human error; 
     
  • Improve communication and collaboration among team members; 
     
  • Deliver new features to customers faster.

Why We Use CI/CD for our Software

LucidTrac is an enterprise resource planning (ERP) software developed by our company that helps businesses manage their resources, including finances, materials, and human resources. It's designed to automate and streamline various business processes, reducing manual efforts and increasing operational efficiency.

One of the key features of LucidTrac is its ability to be deployed across the cloud. By using cloud infrastructure, we can offer greater scalability, flexibility, and accessibility to our customers. However, deploying software across the cloud requires careful planning and execution to ensure that it's secure, reliable, and performs well.

This is where CI/CD comes in. We use a continuous integration and delivery pipeline to automate the deployment of our software across the cloud. This allows us to release new features and updates to our customers quickly and frequently, without sacrificing quality.

The CI/CD pipeline starts with developers committing their code changes to a shared repository. The code is then automatically built, tested, and packaged into a deployable artifact. The artifact is then deployed to a staging environment where it undergoes further testing and validation. Once the software passes all tests and meets the acceptance criteria, it's automatically deployed to production.

By using this process, we can catch issues early in the development cycle, reduce the risk of errors and downtime, and deliver software to our customers faster. This also ensures that our software is always up-to-date with the latest security patches and bug fixes.

In Conclusion: 

As you can see, CI/CD is an essential tool for modern software development and deployment, especially when it comes to delivering software across the cloud. By leveraging CI/CD, we can ensure that our software is of high quality, secure, and reliable, while also providing a seamless experience for our customers.
