Delivering higher quality software faster has become a business imperative. Current software development processes cannot keep pace with the demand for the faster delivery of software. While application development times have accelerated of late due to Agile, scrum and other methodologies, deployment best practices have not kept pace, resulting in a significant bottleneck at the point of application release.
