The concept of “progressive delivery” using feature flags has taken the world of software delivery by storm in recent years, but what does this mean for enterprise software development operations teams and how they should change their technology and practices? Like many things, the application of progressive delivery in the enterprise setting is much easier said than done with disparate technology and teams around the world. 

This talk will cover the state of progressive delivery, the potential benefits and use cases unlocked by adding feature flags into the release management process, and technical considerations for creating CD pipeline integrity with shared feature flag management and control.
