Enforcing Quality with DevOps Pipeline Gates

Conference Track: CMMI: One Size DOES Fit All

DevOps is a complex, nuanced domain. A significant maturity milestone is leveraging DevOps to enforce quality early in the development life-cycle, preventing source code from being merged into a codebase without meeting quality gates, such as unit test coverage, static code analysis, and security analysis.
