As the practice of continuous delivery expands from individual teams to multiple teams and becomes increasingly integral to an IT organization’s ability to deliver software rapidly and reliably, continuous delivery tools and practices are shifting from the domain of development team managed solutions to cross-domain IT managed services.

What is continuous delivery? What tools and processes do you need to be success? How do you move from continuous integration to continuous delivery with minimal disruption? It’s all here in this eBook.


In this paper, we discuss how Docker and continuous delivery are coming together to accelerate innovation in software delivery.


Broad recognition of continuous delivery has benefits across the development lifecycle, but manual processes and organizational inertia stand in the way.

The State of Continuous Delivery

Read this research sponsored by CloudBees and conducted by DZone. Learn what over 900+ IT professionals had to say about the state of continuous delivery.

Continuous Delivery with Jenkins Workflow

Organizations have been orchestrating workflow pipelines with Jenkins for years. As Jenkins and continuous delivery experience deepens, organizations want to move beyond simple pipelines and chart complex flows to map to their specific software delivery process. For Jenkins users, creating and managing complex pipelines just became easier with Jenkins Workflow. Learn what it is, what it does for you and how to set up your delivery pipelines using it.


Automating Continuous Delivery to Solve Software Delivery Challenges

Learn more about the challenges impacting organizations and how continuous delivery processes can be a key success factor in accelerating software delivery.

This EMA research report examines the factors that make DevOps and continuous delivery agents of change within the enterprise. Gain insights into the ways that DevOps practices enable continuous delivery of production-ready code.

Your toolchain is an important strategic part in implementing continuous delivery practices. Building on the power of Jenkins CI, CloudBees enables you to adopt continuous delivery, for both on-premise and cloud-based activities.

Continuous Delivery practices return tremendous value to an organization in the form of higher software quality, reduced costs, greater data-driven decision making, easier experimentation and overall accelerated time to value.

This paper provides a reference architecture to help admins build resilient and scalable Jenkins installations. The result is faster onboarding of projects, reduced costs and enhanced productivity.

In the mobile marketplace, releases are frequent and incremental. In this guide, we will focus on the shift to mobile development, focusing on both the manager and developer perspectives.


The CloudBees Jenkins Platform provides enterprise plugins and professional support for Jenkins. This white paper focuses on the plugins, providing a model that can be used to evaluate ROI from a CloudBees Jenkins Platform subscription.

Jenkins CI is easy to set up and configure. But you will have better results and save time if you know the tips, tricks and settings to optimize your installation. This white paper, by Kohsuke Kawaguchi, Jenkins founder, offers seven best practices to ensure that Jenkins is optimally configured.
