The Two Approaches

Here, in this section, we discuss the important approaches for configuring deployment details in BuildPiper.

Methods for Configuring Deployment Details#

Configuring the deployment details is a critical step in the software development process to ensure that the applications and services are deployed correctly, efficiently, and consistently. A well-governed deployment configuration process helps to improve the speed, reliability, and consistency of the deployment process.

BuildPiper takes care of all this by automating the deployment configuration process, making the deployment process seamless, secure, compliant, faster and more efficient, reducing the risk of human errors.

For automating the process of deployment configuration, BuildPiper provides 2 approaches:
