Continuous Integration is rapidly gaining adoption in large and small organizations alike.  However, while successfully implemented at the team-level, most organizations are struggling to scale CI across multiple teams or enterprise-wide. Frequently implemented as a dev process and not tied to the rest of the software development life cycle.  Resulting in shadow IT, silo’d processes and information, and ultimately a lack of real time visibility across all stakeholders. And even greater implications such as risk of IP loss due to lack of corporate governance controls (e.g., RBAC, security and traceability). In this 30 minute webinar you’ll hear how to scale …

replicated

Other scenarios include deploying mirror repositories to distribute heavy load across multiple servers. We’re using Git, a DVCS. We don’t need replication. Do we? Depending …
