Successfully adopting DevOps through Continuous Delivery provides many business and technical advantages including:

1. Shorter development cycles result in a faster time-to-market:enabling the business to respond to market conditions and gain or maintain competitive advantage.

2. Increased productivity results in increased efficiencies: such as higher throughput and lower costs
