Continuous integration is the process of merging, building and unit testing the code of multiple developers several times a day.Continuous delivery is the process of producing software that can be released at any time. This is an extension of continuous integration that includes automated acceptance testing, user acceptance testing, operational acceptance testing, security testing and release management. Continuous delivery is implemented with a deployment pipeline whereby some environments are build multiple times a day and others are kept more stable for the purposes of testing that may include manual checks.
The DifferenceContinuous delivery is the end-to-end process of developing software in short cycles whereby code is continuously merged and tested so that it can be released at any time. Continuous integration is the subcomponent of the continuous delivery process that is completely within the control of the software development team including the process of merging code, building it and running automated and manual checks against it to validate that it is ready for testing by business units, operations and information security experts.
