Huawei’s Journey to DevOps and Continuous Delivery Prior Year Content

Huawei might be the largest company you've never heard of—one of China's largest telecom, electronics, and mobile device manufacturers, with tens of thousands of software engineers. Huawei is investing heavily in DevOps and continuous delivery (CD), aiming to transform their entire engineering process in just two to three years to reduce software delivery costs. Dan Gordon shares an overview of Huawei’s continuous delivery and DevOps transformation initiatives in a complex, embedded software environment and presents the business drivers for change. Dan discusses the business value of Huawei’s CD implementation―encompassing build, infrastructure provisioning, deployment, testing, and reporting―including release pipeline visualization and progress dashboards. Huawei’s CD and DevOps implementation is a centralized, shared cloud service currently used by 2,000 developers supporting twenty applications. It is now being extended to 40,000 developers, servicing more than 1,000 applications, 100,000 builds a day, and supporting 2,000 releases each year. Huawei’s journey to CD is a massive undertaking.
