An efficient software development process is vital for success in building business applications on SAP cloud or on-premise platforms. We have received numerous customer requests for guidelines how to set up automated Continuous Integration (CI) or Continuous Delivery (CD) processes for their development teams.
We are now happy to announce that we have started publishing a best practice guide at go.sap.com that not only discusses basic principles of such a process, but also addresses questions regarding the choice of tools and their configuration. Our goal is to provide the big picture of CI and CD processes from an SAP customer's perspective and show how to set it up using widely adopted complementary tools.
The best practices are still work in progress. We have finished specific descriptions for delivery automation of Java development on SAP HANA Cloud Platform and SAP HANA XS Classic (XSC). We're planning to add specific descriptions for SAP Fiori and SAP HANA XS Advanced (XSA) soon.
