Best Continuous Integration Software

Continuous integration (CI) is the practice of frequently building and testing each change done to your codebase automatically and as early as possible. Continuous integration is accomplished through automation of testing. By automating tests, users can ensure that the most important features of applications are working, regardless of the changes that developers make. This allows for the confidence to experiment, implement new features, and ship updates quickly. Continuous integration systems are used by developers to find flaws in their code early on in a project or sprint, which can save time and prevent delays in the delivery of new features. Continuous integration systems are an early part of the DevOps workflow that are uniquely defined by each company. They often work seamlessly alongside configuration management, continuous delivery, and continuous deployment systems.

To qualify for inclusion in the Continuous Integration system, a product must:

  • Allow developers to write unit tests that can be executed automatically
  • Perform automated tests against newly written code
  • Show a list of tests that have passed and failed
  • Perform all the necessary actions to create a fully functioning build of the software when all tests have passed
