Not too old to evolve – House of Frasers’ journey to continuous delivery

HoF’s new website launched in April 2017, over 150 years since we opened our doors as a retailer. We’ve seen transformation, but this marked the start of our next chapter – a journey to Continuous Delivery.

We will share our experiences on how we are transitioning from an completely outsourced model to an hybrid development model, moving from a completely manual testing / deployment process and evolving to a Continuous Delivery environment.

With the help of trusted partners and an in house development team we have managed to deliver to production safely, quickly and in a sustainable way for the past 6 months since we started the Continuous Delivery journey.

Objective of the talk

Sharing how we can deliver value in a safe and consistent manner through continuous delivery in a short time, yet recognising the work to be done in the future to accelerate further. Challenges, lessons learnt, wins and how we can achieve excellence.
