Today every business is becoming a software business.
Even traditional brick-and-mortar industries are facing the necessity of software-driven “digital transformation” to stay relevant and competitive in their markets. Industrial icon GE, for instance, is developing software that harnesses data from sensors inside wind turbines. The design is such that it squeezes more electricity from existing wind farms. Automakers embed tens of millions of lines of code into their increasingly “smart” and “connected” vehicles.
As software becomes core to every business — and as cloud-based software services surge in popularity — companies are developing and updating applications faster than ever before. So, welcome to the new era of continuous software delivery. Also, continuous delivery means development teams are releasing software with new features and functionalities in increasingly shorter cycles. The frequency ranges anywhere from every year or quarter to every month, week, or day.
Continuous delivery of applications has become the new normal for software development organizations across every industry. Software development teams are now expected to deliver new releases and updates at a dizzying pace. This puts tremendous pressure on software security teams to keep up with.
In this report,
