DevOps has been an aspirational goal for many organizations for years. Embroiled in the work-from-home reality of the current COVID-19 pandemic, All the timelines for embracing DevOps, generally, and continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) have shrunk, says CircleCI CEO Jim Rose, fresh on the heels of a $100 million Series E raise. The pandemic has compressed the time that companies are taking to get to CI/CD.
