OPS05-BP10 Fully automate integration and deployment - Operational Excellence Pillar

OPS05-BP10 Fully automate integration and deployment

Automate build, deployment, and testing of the workload. This reduces errors caused by manual processes and reduces the effort to deploy changes.

Apply metadata using Resource Tags and AWS Resource Groups following a consistent tagging strategy to aid in identification of your resources. Tag your resources for organization, cost accounting, access controls, and targeting the run of automated operations activities.

Common anti-patterns:

  • On Friday you, finish authoring the new code for your feature branch. On Monday, after running your code quality test scripts and each of your unit tests scripts, you will check in your code for the next scheduled release.

  • You are assigned to code a fix for a critical issue impacting a large number of customers in production. After testing the fix, you commit your code and email change management to request approval to deploy it to production.

Benefits of establishing this best practice: By implementing automated build and deployment management systems, you reduce errors caused by manual processes and reduce the effort to deploy changes helping your team members to focus on delivering business value.

Level of risk exposed if this best practice is not established: Low
