The pace of code deployment has picked up dramatically, with 83% of developers stating they are launching code more rapidly than in 2021. To remain competitive, it is critical to adopt pioneering technologies like mobile Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD).
Mobile CI/CD pipelines have seen a swift ascent in application, mechanizing manual tasks, and significantly advancing tech. Over half of companies (55.7%) use continuous integration, while 34.3% employ continuous delivery. Automation in DevOps has impressively risen from 8% in 2020 to 24% today.
Despite the booming demand for mobile apps and faster code release, some developers remain hesitant about CI/CD. Challenges abound, from labor shortages to soaring costs and security threats. However, 35% of developers have successfully integrated CI/CD pipelines, reaping substantial benefits.
CI/CD pipelines enable developers to pinpoint bugs early, deliver seamless user experiences, gear up for quicker releases, and keep pace with the evolving mobile landscape. CI/CD has led to an 8.3% improvement in test reliability, a 6.3% increase in customer satisfaction, an 8.7% simplification in maintenance, and a 5% cost reduction.
Bitrise, a leader in mobile DevOps, showcases the power of automation with a robust suite of CI/CD tools. The importance of automating mobile CI/CD pipelines has evolved from being desirable to indispensable, offering benefits from bug detection to cost savings and empowering mobile developers to outperform the competition. The future of mobile development is invested in automation via mobile CI/CD. Now is the time to leverage this wave.
