An important role is played by a mobile continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) platform in today’s technologically advanced environment. By automating the tedious processes involved in creating, testing, and deploying mobile applications, this platform enables developers to reliably and regularly release software upgrades.
The demand for mobile apps is rapidly increasing, with billions of mobile users worldwide and millions of app downloads a year. To meet this demand, developers are releasing code at an accelerated pace, relying on CI/CD pipelines to keep up. 35% of developers released code twice as fast as in 2021, and 15% released code 3-5 times faster.
However, challenges such as a shortage of skilled engineers and evolving customer expectations pose hurdles in mobile app production. Buggy releases can lead to high uninstall rates, leaving little room for mistakes. Rising costs in the industry, coupled with the reluctance of 85% of SaaS companies to increase prices, leaves little room for errors.
Despite these challenges, the benefits of CI/CD pipelines are substantial, allowing developers to catch bugs early and provide seamless mobile experiences that exceed customer expectations. Leveraging CI/CD automation frees up developers’ mental resources, leading to better app development and increased customer satisfaction.
