When implementing new technology, there is often the expectation that the faster new innovations can be released, the better. Today's modern DevOps teams look for additional ways to automate and streamline the development process, in light of the rising pressure to innovate at a faster pace.
But oftentimes, speed comes at a price. New capabilities are not always bug-free the first time, which means taking the time to step back and make sure that the quality of the finished product is of a standard acceptable to your user base.
