Control and Velocity in Production
Combining CI/CD and Feature Flags
Engineering teams are constantly trying to deliver software faster. Adopting continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) helps them achieve this goal. However, many development and DevOps groups find they lack control at the end of the CI/CD process, after code is released to production. For example, a single issue could mean that the entire deployment must be rolled back.
That’s where feature flags come in. Feature flags can help:
- Simplify feature access control for customers
- Decouple deployment from release
- Relieve the engineering bottleneck
Read “Control and Velocity in Production: Combining CI/CD and Feature Flags,” to learn how the combination of CI/CD and feature flags can result in greater control and velocity in production.
