Martin Brodbeck, CTO of online travel agency Priceline, said he has deployed more tools, such as Harness, to help speed development within his company and is continuing to roll out more technologies to support his teams.
“Our goal is to have zero humans involved to deploy code into our environment. From a deployment perspective, it can make things move a lot faster,” Brodbeck says. “We’re able to throw out more features and functions more quickly, see if they work and then if they do, we can scale them quickly. And if there are any issues, we can roll back the deployments.”
Brodbeck says he doesn’t track deployment times so he can’t quantify how any particular tool has helped increase development speed, but he says, “Anecdotally, we know we’re faster.”
