Jenkins is an open source tool used to help automate parts of the software delivery process. Why is Jenkins so important?
In smaller companies with a handful of apps and fewer silos, implementing Continuous Delivery (CD) pipelines to support these apps is fairly straightforward using one of the many delivery orchestration tools available today. For example, there is usually a limited tool set, application types, and security practices to support –generally fewer cooks in the kitchen. But in a larger organization, there are seemingly endless unique requirements and mountains to climb to reach this level of automation on each new project.
