Continuous Delivery/Deployment (CD)

Welcome to the Online Training (OLT) Continuous Delivery/Deployment (CD) course! The acronym CD can refer to Continuous Delivery or Continuous Deployment. In the world of software, it is used (and misused) frequently. CD is often used when discussing the ability to develop capabilities "at the speed of relevance." It doesn't guarantee an Initial Operational Capability (IOC) will be met quicker, but it means we can respond to changing requirements very fast. It also means we will deploy some of the IOC capability sooner so we can realize value from it and get operational feedback.
