CI/CD aims to reduce the time in between when a code change is made and when it is deployed and in use. The Holy Grail that many on the path of CI/CD are pursuing is to reduce the time from commit to production down to minutes, without the need for human intervention along the way. To do this, many types of automation are employed to test, build, package and deploy code changes. To really get there though, your application architecture has to be amenable to this potential rate of change.
