The vast majority of developers are releasing code faster than they did in 2021, requiring new innovations in order to stay one step ahead of the competition, including the use of mobile CI/CD. CI/CD stands for continuous integration, continuous delivery, and continuous deployment, and is a method that automates much of the manual human intervention that would traditionally be needed to get new code directly into production.
Many have yet to embrace the new potential of CI/CD pipeline, notably of which are mobile app developers. Around the world, there are an estimated 7.33 billion mobile users with 255 billion mobile apps downloaded worldwide in just 2022. This immeasurably large market means that the demand for getting updates out as fast as possible has skyrocketed. 35% of developers are saying that they are releasing code 2 times as fast as they did in 2021 and 15% are saying code is being released 3 to even 5 times faster. This makes a perfect environment for CI/CD systems to thrive as it helps with getting updates released sooner as well as responding to bugs and preventing potential bugs from releasing.
